Overview: What is Maltodextrin?
Maltodextrin is a common polysaccharide that is a ready source of glucose. Food, Beverage, Sports Nutrition and Pharma industries all use this ingredient as a critical item within the many blends and formulations. In terms of appearances, Maltodextrin is most commonly sold as a white to off-white spray-dried powder, with a mildly sweet to almost non-existent flavour or odour.
The manufacture of Maltodextrin occurs by the partial hydrolysis of a variety of vegetable starches. Hydrolysis is the chemical breakdown of a product with water in its most simple forms. The primary vegetable sources that create Maltodextrin are corn and wheat.
There is a multitude of products and applications for Maltodextrin in a range of industries. The most common industry for this is within the Food and Beverage trade. Many products use it as a mild sweetener, and a means to improve the mouthfeel of many (usually low-fat) products. The range includes crisps, jerkies, peanut butter, and many more while minimising the final product's fat content.
Additionally, you can find it within sports pre/post workout mixes, energy drinks, and energy gels to quickly release glucose into the system. Finally, pharmaceutical industries use it as a thickening agent and sugar substitutes in countless products, including baby formula.
