MaltoDextrin (Food Grade)


Product Details

Maltodextrins is derived from maize/corn and tapioca. These are partially hydrolysed starches, composed of longer chains than glucose. The degree of hydrolysis is measured as a Dextrose Equivalent (DE). This slight hydrolysis makes starch soluble.

Maltodextrins are widely used food additive which improves texture of food and its mouthfeel. They have varying length polymer profiles that provide a wide range of viscosity and solubility characteristics.
