Chemical Description

  • Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide that is used as a food additive.
  • It is produced from starch by partial hydrolysis and is usually found as a white hygroscopic spray-dried powder.
  • It is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose, and might be either moderately sweet or almost flavorless.
  • Maltodextrin is less sweet than sugar, making it a suitable ingredient for providing a mild sweetness in products like sports drinks, energy bars, and candies without overwhelming the flavor.
  • It is used to thicken soups, sauces, and salad dressings, providing the desired texture and consistency. In baked goods, it acts as a filler to increase volume.
  • Often found in sports drinks and nutritional supplements, maltodextrin provides a quick source of energy due to its rapid digestion and absorption.
  • It helps stabilize ingredients in food products, ensuring that they mix well and maintain their desired consistency and texture.
  • Used in powdered products like drink mixes and instant foods, maltodextrin helps to bulk up the volume without significantly affecting taste or calorie content.
  • In some products, it aids in extending shelf life by absorbing moisture, which helps prevent spoilage and clumping.
  • In the pharmaceutical industry, maltodextrin is used as a binder in tablet formulations, ensuring that the pills hold together.
  • It serves as a binding agent in cosmetic products like creams and lotions, helping to stabilize the mixture and improve texture.
  • In textile manufacturing, maltodextrin is used as a sizing agent to strengthen fibers during weaving.
  • It is employed in the production of paper and cardboard as a binding and sizing agent to improve the quality and strength of the final product.
  • Maltodextrin is used in products designed for individuals with specific dietary needs, such as those requiring gluten-free or hypoallergenic foods.
  • Due to its high glycemic index, maltodextrin is often included in supplements aimed at individuals looking to gain weight or muscle mass.
  • Available in 25 Kg bags.
