But that was a bag of grain, right? As was mentioned dextrin malt is another name for carapils. Here is morebeer description of maltodextrin, it's a powder and not the same thing:
"Our maltodextrin is composed of .5% dextrose, 2.5% Maltose, 3.5% maltoriose, 93.5% higher saccaharides, and is made from corn"
