Uses: Dextrins are used as a thickener, vegetable gum, foam stabiliser in beer, artificial sweetener base from tapioca or corn and even GMO soya. No known adverse effects, but not fully evaluated for safety.

They also impart a crispness enhancer for food processing, in food batters, coatings, and glazes

Description: Dextrins are a polymer of dextrose, prepared by partial degradation of starch which is roasted with hydrochloric acid.

Maltodextrin is a shortchain starch sugar, gelatin hybrid base, (dextrin) used as a food additive. It is produced also by enzymatic hydrolysis from gelatinated starch and is usually found as a creamy-white hygroscopic spray dried powder.

Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose, and might either be moderately sweet or have hardly any flavour at all.
