Maltodextrin, according to a dietician I talked to when I was taking a several week long Heart Smart exercise and diet program, is derived from corn. It is a carbohydrate and should be safe for people who are gluten intolerant, as long as they're not allergic to corn as well. I had been avoiding it and that really reduced the number of foods I could eat. After talking with her, I buy GF foods containging maltodextrin, and have had no problems with them.

Whey is dairy. We have to avoid that for my son.

It took me a while before I came across a listing like this after I was diagnosed. I have found it very helpful!

Whey still confuses my husband. He thinks its from wheat because of how it sounds. If only it was that straight-forward!

Maltodextrin is a starch. It is usually based from corn starch in the US. I've only been GF since Oct after my diagnosis. I know I avoided foods with that in the ingredient list at first because I thought it might be malt until I learned its origin. There is a lot to learn at first. I tackled foods a little at a time instead of taking on the whole grocery store at once. That helped me keep my sanity. :)

From the information I found, as long as the food is manufactured in the U.S., maltodextrin is probably OK. It isn't the same thing as malt; malt is on the forbidden list.
Hope that helps.

I don't know if it is the same as malt but it sure doesn't agree with me - makes my stomach feel like a lake on fire.
