    Product Overview

    Maltodextrin is a carbohydrate polymer derived from starch by enzymatic hydrolysis. It appears as white to off-white powder or granular solid. Maltodextrin is characterized by its solubility and mild taste. It dissolves easily in water to form a low-viscosity and sweet solution. The degree of starch hydrolysis determines the chain length and molecular weight distribution of maltodextrin polymers. This in turn affects physical properties such as solubility, texture enhancement, and viscosity. By varying the molecular weight distribution, a variety of specialty maltodextrins can be produced for specific food and pharmaceutical applications requiring stability, solubility, and neutral taste.

    The main application of Maltodextrin
    • Maltodextrin in baked goods functions as a water binder, aiding in preserving freshness and maintaining softness. It also plays a role in preventing starch retrogradation, crystallization, and syneresis in frozen desserts.
    • Maltodextrin in energy drinks is used to provide carbohydrates for energy and improve the mouthfeel.
    • Maltodextrin in animal feed serves as an easily digestible energy source, enhancing growth efficiency and daily gain. It additionally aids in improving feed dispersibility and fluidity.
    • Maltodextrin in pharmaceuticals is utilized to convert drug solutions into powders, ensuring good solubility and handling properties.
    • Maltodextrin in cosmetics and skin care products acts as a lightweight thickener, offering a smooth feel to the products.
    • Maltodextrin in plastics contributes to enhanced processability, flexibility, and heat resistance. Its addition to the polymer matrix also aids in improving adhesion.
