We all know too much fructose is bad for you, glucose is fine (post workout)...and how about maltose? Anyone has any idea about it? I'm thinking of trying a recipe but it's using maltose in the ingredients. Thanks!

The problem is the gelatin and natural flavors, both are usual suspect culprits for "free glutamic acid" which is a deceptive way of introducing monosodium glutamate into food.

does this mean that gummie bears, whose only ingredients are glucose syrup, gelatin, and natural flavors are an appropriate post-workout snack? If so, I'm in heaven..

Maltose is two glucoses joined together. An enzyme in your small intestine will split it apart, and your body will suck up the two glucoses. No harm done. Have at it PWO, or if you aren't trying to lose any fat, have at it whenever.

It's ultimately just glucose, so it's fine.
