Product Summary

TORQ Maltodextrin 20 is not surprisingly 100% maltodextrin and is often referred to as a glucose polymer. A glucose polymer’s molecular profile optimises the long-term energy providing properties of complex carbohydrates, with low osmolality in the gut and without the need to consume bulky starch-rich foods.

TORQ Maltodextrin 20 can be simply mixed with water (1 scoop per 250ml) to create an organic unflavoured energy drink and this is incredibly popular with people who don’t like strong flavours but realise they need to hydrate and fuel themselves during exercise.

Beyond functioning as a flavourless energy drink, this product has many more uses. Often dubbed ‘the invisible calorie’ by our customers and performance coaches, TORQ Maltodextrin 20 is the ideal product for increasing carbohydrate intake at times when the body is under high training stress or you need to carbohydrate load to peak for an event. Sometimes (training camps or stage races for instance) it’s simply impossible to consume the amount of carbohydrate calories required and TORQ Maltodextrin 20 makes this challenge so much easer. This can be achieved in a variety of ways:

Create a Rich Energy Drink: Because TORQ Maltodextrin 20 is practically flavourless, it’s possible to mix up a very concentrated energy drink and add a little juice concentrate (squash) to flavour it if desired. TORQ Maltodextrin 20 has the density of sugar, but nowhere near the sweetness or osmolality in the gut, making high concentrations of carbohydrate easy to handle.

Add to Tea, Coffee or Soup: Again, the flavourless nature of TORQ Maltodextrin 20 delivers a very high level of versatility. Significant amounts of powder can be added to tea, coffee and soups with a barely recognisable effect on flavour. With soups, TORQ Maltodextrin 20 can actually lift the flavour and add extra thickness/body.

Add to Sauces, Porridge or Custard: At TORQ, we call it ‘Bionic Custard’ because regular custard is pretty high in carbohydrate anyway, but add a few scoops of TORQ Maltodextrin 20 to your portion and it’ll taste even better and improve the texture. Similarly, this powder can be added to savoury sauces that you would usually have with rice or pasta, where the product truly lives up to its ‘invisible calorie’ reputation.

Add to any Sweet or Savoury Recipe: Whether your making cakes, flapjacks or pancakes, there’s always room to squeeze in some extra energy. Simply add some TORQ Maltodextrin 20 to the recipe – no need to alter it and with a bit of practice you’ll be able to fine-tune the right amount.

Sprinkle on Anything: Whether it’s your breakfast cereal or a curry, the limit is in your imagination!

Product Usage

1 level scoop of TORQ Maltodextrin 20 carries 15 grams of powder, equivalent to 60 kCals of carbohydrate.

If making a flavourless energy drink, add 1 level scoop of TORQ Maltodextrin 20 per 250ml of water. For a 500ml bottle, this would be 2 scoops and for a 750ml bottle, it would be 3 and so on. This creates an isotonic mix, but you can experiment with stronger mixes in cooler weather when hydration is not so important. Add some fruit juice concentrate (squash) to flavour your drink if desired. Always add powder to water and not water to powder. Half fill drinks bottle with water, add all the powder, shake well whilst you have an air space and then top up with water and shake again. TORQ Maltodextrin 20 is now ready to drink.

If using TORQ Maltodextrin 20 as an invisible calorie to increase the carbohydrate content of drinks/foods, we will leave you to experiment, but remember for best results to add the powder to water if making a strong energy drink. With hot drinks and other heated recipes it will blend in easily when stirred.
