Maltodextrin is known as a polysaccharide where many carbohydrates are combined together in a molecular chain. It is made from vegetable starch by partial hydrolysis and is generally found as a white hygroscopic spray-dried powder. Maltodextrin is easily digestible and is absorbed as rapidly as glucose. It may be either moderately sweet or almost flavourless depending on the degree of polymerisation used.
Maltodextrin is utilised as a food additive. It is widely used in the manufacturing of soft drinks as well as candy. It is found as an ingredient in a variety of other processed food.
Maltodextrin is composed of D-glucose units connected in chains of variable length. The glucose units are mainly combined with a(1?4) glycosidic bonds. Maltodextrin commonly consists of a mixture of strings that vary from 3 to 17 glucose units long. Maltodextrins are classified by DE or dextrose equivalent and have a DE between 3 and 20. The value of DE value and the glucose chains are inversely proportional.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Maltodextrin production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
This report presents an analysis of capital and operating costs of a -based industrial plant. For those interested in economic assessments considering other plant locations, Procurement Resource offers optional analyses that complement this report.
