I was wondering if I could get some feedback on a diy recipe before I order all the ingredients as I am very new to this. I also have a number of questions regarding its contents. The recipe is http://diy.soylent.me/recipes/intrepids-whey-n-maltodextrin
Firstly the recipe uses a large amount of maltodextrin, 145g, and I am concerned about blood sugar levels having such a large amount in the recipe, has anyone experienced an issue? I’m planning to split a days worth over 4/5 ‘meals’ but I’m wondering if I should look at slow release carbs?
I’m also using sodium bicarbonate for my sodium component, I haven’t seen many people use this, is there a reason? Or am I not looking hard enough?
I’m also concerned about the potential saltiness from using 5.5g of potassium chloride, has this been an issue for anyone? In tempted to use this inside some capsules so as not to effect taste, anyone tried this?
My other major concern is the oils, I have chosen these to fill out the omega 3/6 but I am not sure if they are the best choices?
I also think I should probably include an emulsifier? Are there any recommendations for ones in the uk?
