de Sousa et al. (2010) Eur J Appl Physiol. 109:507-16.
Study: A placebo-controlled trial. 24 male runners were divided into two groups, maltodextrin-group (CHO) and control-group (CON). Participants performed 10 x 800 m at mean 3 km velocity and an all-out 1000 m running was performed before and after the 10 x 800 m.
Results: Running performance was significantly improved in the maltodextrin-group.
Conclusion: Maltodextrin improved running performance.
