Today, we’re going to talk about the carbohydrate that’s more dangerous than sugar: maltodextrin.

Of all the ultra-processed food ingredients, I consider this one the worst.

Maltodextrin is GMO, refined, and highly processed. It can lead to belly fat, diabetes, and gut inflammation, yet it’s considered safe.

Even though maltodextrin is not a sugar and it’s not sweet, it behaves like sugar in the body. It’s also higher than sugar on the glycemic index.

Maltodextrin is an ingredient in many different products, from chips to seasonings, supplements, and infant formulas. It’s even in certain drinks like light beer, energy drinks, and sports drinks.

Because it’s not classified as a sugar, maltodextrin can also be added to sugar-free products even though it behaves like a sugar.

Maltodextrin is a filler ingredient, and there are loopholes that companies can use to legally add it to their products.

Other names for maltodextrin are dextrin, modified food starch, glucose syrup, corn starch, food starch, and corn syrup.

It’s crucial to start reading the ingredients in your products to avoid dangerous ingredients like maltodextrin.
