Description: White powder or granular white powder, available in a variety of particle sizes and DE* values. Non-sweet, nutritive saccharide polymers composed of D-glucose units linked primarily by alpha-1-4 bonds...* DE = dextrose equivalents, a quantitative measure of the degree of starch polymer hydrolysis. The higher the DE, the greater the extent of starch hydrolysis. Can be used for sweetness moderation. Maltodextrin with a DE of 5 is the least sweet, and is approximately 1/10 as sweet as sucrose. Maltodextrin with a DE of 18 is approximately 1/4 as sweet as sucrose.
Maltodextrins are obtained by the partial hydrolysis of starch whereby the basic polymeric structure is retained. Maltodextrins are water soluble, non-sweet products that are supplied as spray-dried powders. Maltodextrins are defined by the FDA as products having a DE less than 20.
They are generally recognized as safe (GRAS) food ingredients. Maltodextrins are excellent solids builders for standard and low-fat products. They are effective spray-drying aids for flavors, fruit juices, and other hard-to-dry products. They also have a neutral taste.
Characteristics & Applications
Maltodextrins are easily dispersed into water or other aqueous-based systems and are commonly used in consumer products such as dry mixes.
Maltodextrins are used as crystallisation inhibitor. Added in candies and half-soft sweets, it can prevent sweets appearing sand and extend the shelf life. Debasing and eliminating the smell of mutton, stabilizing the alimentation elements, keeping the character and flavor and increasing the quality.
Maltodextrins are used as source of carbohydrate in high-energy drink, especially for athletes. They also are easily digestible carbohydrates for nutritional beverages, which fits athletes training to increase sugar content in musculature and enhance physical strength and eliminate fatigue.
Maltodextrins are used as carrier for spray-drying of active substances.
Maltodextrins are used as diluents in single unit dosage preparations such as sachets. Because of their inherent polymeric nature maltodextrins also make excellent binders for direct compression. Since it has weak sweetness, they're widely used in food processing such as sweets, ice cream, jam, cakes etc., and the flavour of other materials in the products can be improved.
Maltodextrins are used as coating agent in pharmaceutical industries.
Maltodextrins are used as binder since they have a rather high viscosity in solution and good binding properties. If proper amount of maltodextrin powder is added to solid granules or ball candies or white-sugar rice cakes, molding rate is increased and work efficiency is improved.
Maltodextrins are used as stabilizier since they belong to large numerator saccharide, high viscidity and high foam stability. Therefore, it can be used as foam stabilizer in beer making and gas liquor making.
