Your anecdote that another racer consumes 400 cals/hour doesn't really help your cause because you haven't shown that its actually beneficial to consume that much or that there is a difference in that range considering the range of CHO metabolism in Jeukendrop's actual study https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18202575
Well I'm not going to do a study on the topic for the case of argument. The information I referenced pointed out your range was not really an absolute, which you agree with it sounds like - a person can absorb more than 300 calories / hour. If many can absorb 360, some certainly can consume more seems to be a reasonable assumption. I just wanted to make sure people reading the thread didn't think there was some magic in limiting ones calorie consumption to 300 calories / hour which is what I thought you were saying. Enough said, moving on.

2 PB&J sandwiches cut into quarters plus maybe a little something else at the 1/2 way point should do it

Maltodextrin is bad for your gut health, it will destroy all the good friendly gut bacteria and mess up your digestion, I would never put that crap inside my body.

How long does that take? I'm on my second fifty pound bag in three seasons and haven't noticed anything yet.

Wow, where'd you read that? Have you read about the 12 serious side effects of eating tomatoes? There's a lot of information out there . . .

I'm going on 20 years using it for bike food. I even use it for breakfast the mornings before big rides. Everything's working just fine. It's just long-chain glucose molecules. Nothing unusual. One of the big pluses of malto as an athletic fuel is that it is not sweet. You can drink it all day and not get tired of it. The other is that the long chain molecules have a lower osmolality in the stomach than do simple sugars. This allows it to pass more quickly across the stomach wall. Beta Fuel used by Team Sky among others is simply maltodextrin, fructose, and electrolytes. So far Team Sky seems to be doing just fine. I can't burn the calories like Team Sky, so I get along fine without the fructose.
