Maltodextrins are easily digestible carbohydrates made from natural corn starch, nothing to do with malt products despite the name suggesting so. They are polymers of dextrose (sometimes labeled "glucose polymers"), that do not contain significant quantities of protein, fat or fibre. ***Diabetics maltodextrin’s glycemic index is considered to be metabolically equivalent to glucose (dextrose). In other words it is equivalent to sugar!*** For a low-carber such as myself, this product is fine & the taste is fantastic, no bitterness whatsoever & super sweet for such a small sachet, but please don't get this if you are a diabetic.

This is a good product that adds taste to my tea and coffe. I love it but I am not too fond of the packaging. I think one packet contain too much product for just one cup of tea for example so i will always end up with throwing away the remain or maybe leave it aside for the next time I will be using it. The powder is so soft and fine, which is a good thing but not when you want to seal the package again for the next use. It gets messy. Bottom line: i like this product but next time when i buy I will chose the liquid stevia.
