Q: Is it safe to consume the Maltodextrin in BarleyGreen if I am diabetic?

Q: Is maltodextrin bad?
A: No, actually it is the maltodextrin that makes our product so special. Dr. Hagiwara selected it after years of research because he discovered that he was able to protect enzymes at the molecular level by adding maltodextrin to the barley juice. In addition it isn't a simple sugar or filler but a complex carbohydrate that has a slow energy release, making it ideal for people who are concerned with elevating their blood sugar levels.

Q: Will I have an allergic reaction to the barley in BarleyGreen?
A: No. The powdered juice is taken from the leaves, it is the gluten content in corn, wheat, and barley grain which causes allergies. None of the ingredients in BarleyGreen contain gluten.
