Default Maltodextrin in Sweetener

I've added some sweetener to a brew that contains maltodextrin, no doubt as a physical filler for the sweetener as it has a caster sugar like appearance. It hasn't got the percentages on the packet, so does anybody have any idea roughly how much I could have added? I used 250g sweetener in a 1 gal brew, what's the usual sort of amount of maltodextrin that's added to give a brew some body?
