Properties & Applications & PackagesInquiry
Maltodextrin is a white or yellowish amorphous powder extracted from starch extracted from corn or rice, liquefied and hydrolyzed by biological enzyme, refined, pre concentrated, and spray dried. Also known as water-soluble dextrin or enzymatic dextrin, it belongs to low DE value starch hydrolysate, with a glucose value (DE value) generally below 20. This product has no starch odor, is a flowing white amorphous powder, is not sweet or slightly sweet, and has a calorific value of 418.68kj/100g. Maltodextrin is a nutritious pure carbohydrate that is easy to digest and absorb. Good solubility, moderate viscosity, low hygroscopicity, not suitable for agglomeration, with good carrier and emulsifying and thickening effects.

Maltodextrin is used in various foods due to its mild taste, low sweetness, and weak moisture absorption. For example, maltodextrin can be used as a filler, carrier, flavor enhancer, moisturizer, dispersant, film-forming agent, encapsulation agent, etc. It belongs to low molecular weight carbohydrates and is easily digested and absorbed by the human body. It is very suitable for infants, elderly people, and groups with weak gastrointestinal function and poor digestion and absorption to consume in moderation to supplement energy. However, maltodextrin belongs to small molecular sugar, and its blood sugar rises rapidly, which is not conducive to the stability of blood sugar and is not suitable for large consumption, especially for diabetes patients. In addition, maltodextrin has low levels of vitamins and minerals and is not suitable for consumption alone. Eating it together with meat, vegetables, and other foods can slow down the rate of blood sugar increase.

Maltodextrin can be used in industries such as candy, beverages, instant noodles, papermaking, cosmetics, pesticides, etc., as an anti crystallization and free flowing agent; Forming agent; Processing aids; Compatibilizer fillers; Stabilizers and thickeners; Surface polishing agent.
