      @@EthanTheGreat_ not necessarily to give a pill its shape. You have to read labels as it can be found in protein powder as well, encapsuled vitamins and supplements too. The fact is that maltodextrin is very high in the glycemic index (GI) which is much higher than sugars to enjoy 😉

    So food labeled sugar free can be much worse than the sugar you were trying to avoid. Food companies have so many dirty tricks up their sleeve.

    I learned about maltodextrin by Dr. Berg in previous videos but I had no idea that it is among the ingredients in some “healthy seeds” I chose as snack for someone till i checked the list of items, i mean why they even need to add this to sunflower seeds? Thank you for sharing this.

    Maltodextrin makes my heart beat so fast I feel like I’m going to have a heart attack. I read all labels to try to stay away from it.

      Profit-driven companies don’t care much about our safety unless consumers start spreading awareness of the dangers and taking legal actions to make them accountable.

      Not necessarily always the case, but usually a good idea. Pay attention to how the foods are made and where they’re grown regardless of labels.
