Product Description

Maltodextrin Powder

Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide (type of Carbohydrate)  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. Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose, and might be either moderately sweet or almost flavorless. It is commonly used for the production of sodas and candy. It can also be found as an ingredient in a variety of other processed foods. It is also used as a thickener for soups, grvies, and salad dressings.

Maltodextrin is a creamy white hygroscopic powder, moderately sweet in taste.  It is produced by partial hydrolysis of starch by a typical total enzyme process using a bacterial alphaamylase followed by refining and spray-drying to a moisture level of 3% to 5%.  Maltodextrin is a mixture of glucose, maltose, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides.

What is Maltodextrin used for?

Foods   
Maltodextrin is the simplest form of sugar, has a soft mouthfeel and is easily digested.  This property makes its use extensive in baby foods, feed supplements, geriatric foods and foods for convalescents.  It is also used as a carrying and dispersing agent for flavours and is ideally suited for encapsulation.

Beverages 
Maltodextrin is popular as a flavouring, bodying and drying agent in chocolate drinks, flavour powders, special diets, citrus powders and coffee powders, besides others.  It is also used to replace a portion of protein whipping agent in aerated beverages. Instant foods
For instant foods, maltodextrin is the perfect carrying agent due to its free flexibility, open structure, dispersibility in cold water and ability to maintain clarity and eye appeal.  It is, therefore, extensively used as a bodying and bulking agent in puddings, soups and frozen desserts.

Bakery products 
Due to the presence of higher molecular weight saccharides, maltodextrin lends mouth feel and body to fruit products, granola bars, cream type fillings, icings and cakes.  It is also used as a moisture-holding agent in breads, pastries and meats. Food industryMaltodextrin is used in soup powders, concentrates and spices, spice flavour blends, cheese sauces, cream  sauces, pizza sauces and salad dressings as a bodying agent, flavour enhancer, oxygen barrier, colour controller, stabilising and viscosity builder and as a spray-drying agent.

Dairy 
Maltodextrin is used extensively in coffee whiteners, imitation sour creams, imitation cheeses and whipped toppings. Confectionery
It is perfect for candy coating and soft-centre candies, for frosting and glazing, for nut and snack coating, in lozenges and for binding, plasticizing and crystal inhibition.  In hard candies, it improves the hygroscopic characteristics.
