What is Maltodextrin?

Maltodextrin (MD), a polysaccharide food raw material, is a low-conversion product between starch sugar and starch.

An amorphous powder white or slightly yellowish appearance, with no visible impurities, having a special odor, and not sweet or slightly sweet.

Maltodextrin is a highly processed carbohydrate. It is a white powder made from corn, rice, wheat, or potato starch. It has to be cooked first, and then an acid or enzyme is added to break it down further. The final product is a colorless, water-soluble powder.

Is Maltodextrin full of sugar?

Every tiny piece of Maltodextrin contains short chains of sugars. After hydrolysis, Maltodextrin is purified, then spray-dried to turn it into its signature powder form. While Maltodextrin may contain sugar molecules, it doesn't taste sugar or sweet.

What is Maltodextrin used for?

In concrete

Adding Maltodextrin to building materials admixture can delay the heat of hydration and slow setting. Compared with other retarders, Maltodextrin has a better effect on concrete and workability. Because Maltodextrin is a concrete retarder, it can only be used in conjunction with water-reducing agents and pumping agents. Adding it slows down the hydration rate of the cement, allowing the concrete to travel from the station to the construction site as required.

In foodstuff

Maltodextrin is commonly used as a filler or thickener to increase the volume of processed foods. It is also a preservative that can extend the shelf life of packaged foods. It is easy and inexpensive to produce, so it is useful in thickening products such as gelatin, instant puddings, sauces, and salad dressings.

Is Maltodextrin a Sucralose?

Sucralose has no calories, but it also contains the carbohydrates glucose and Maltodextrin, which have a whopping 3.36 calories per gram.
