Maltodextrin CAS 9050-36-6

Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide that is used as a food additive. It is made from refined cornstarch enzymatically by advanced processing technology and is usually found as a creamy-white hygroscopic spraydried powder.

Introduction

Maltodextrin consists of D-glucose (dextrin) units connected in chains of variable length. The glucose units are linked with α bonds. Maltodextrin is typically composed of mixtures of chains that vary from three to nineteen glucose units long. Maltodextrins are classified by DE (dextrose equivalent) and have a DE of 20 or higher, mostly between 5 to 20. Above DE 20, the European Union's CN code calls it glucose syrup.

Functions and Applications

Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide that is used as a food additive. It is made from refined cornstarch enzymatically by advanced processing technology and is usually found as a creamy-white hygroscopic spraydried powder. Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose, and might be either moderately sweet or almost flavorless.
