protein=self-explanatory
dextrose=because it is a monosaccharide (sp?) and it tends to service muscles, so that all the carbs are going where you want them to unlike disaccharides, some of whose carbs go to the liver.
malto=cannot remember. I seem to recall being told that in tests, combining the malto into the equation gave better results (I know that isn't a good answer)

Anyway, I use the ratio 1:1:1 in a little more than 20 oz. of water. I believe that is the default ratio, but as the other respondent to your question implied, you can play around with the ratios to get the results you wish. For example, cutting down the carbs if you are trying to lose fat via carb-restriction, or increasing the carbs if you are skinny and trying to gain.
