Are Maltodextrins safe to consume while breastfeeding?


Yes, maltodextrins are safe during breastfeeding and any other time (especially related to exercise) unless you’re borderline diabetic and then you should limit daily amounts because of a potential blood sugar spike. Maltodextrins are fast acting sugars, which is why it’s a popular ingredient in athletic formulas, as in before, during and after exercise supplements, because you want it to digest quick to reach the muscles/glycogen fast. Make sure your daily diet also contains fibrous carbs such as grains, fruits and vegetables as well.
