I have read some older threads discussing various carb sources, but none of them seemed conclusive on the answers I was looking for.
I don’t like Masa Harina. The corn taste and the texture are the two things I can’t stand about it. Instead, I tried looking for a finer-grained carb source to use. I chose to try rice flour. It was better, but the fact that the rice flour doesn’t dissolve still leaves a bad texture in my mouth.
My next logical step was to look for carbs which dissolve in water. Corn starch seemed great if I bought the generic brands. I just want to make sure it will be healthy for me if used for a long-term solution. The recipe fulfills my nutrition requirements, but I know little about the other health risks of corn starch or the glycemic index of it.
My last option might be to use maltodextrin. I hear it is fairly inexpensive, but I am concerned about the glycemic index of it and long-term health use, as well.
If anyone has any other suggestions for carbs which dissolve in water and are fairly cheap to obtain, I’m open to exploring my options. My recipe is fairly easy to adapt to other carb sources.
