About Maltodextrin:

Maltodextrin is basically a polysaccharide (many carbohydrates joined together in a molecular chain) that is utilised as a food additive. It is prepared from vegetable starch by partial hydrolysis and is generally found as a white hygroscopic spray-dried powder. Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as quickly as glucose and can be either moderately sweet or almost flavourless (depending on the degree of polymerisation).

Chemical Formula:

  • C6nH(10n+2)O(5n+1)
  • Synonyms:
  • 9050-36-6  

Industrial Use:

  • Additive (to thicken food products)
  • Sweetener (sugar substitute)
  • Soft drinks and candy
  • Processed foods
  • Dietary supplement
  • Infant formula
  • Horticultural insecticide

Production process:

  • Production of Maltodextrin via Hydrolysis.

In this process, starch undergoes hydrolysis with the help of limited water and enzymes, which facilitates break down of its heavy molecules into lighter molecules, thus, producing Maltodextrin.
