Rice Maltodextrins

Rice Maltodextrins

Rice maltodextrin is a popular rice derivative that is hygroscopic in nature and available in a white, nonsweet powder form. It is made up of nutritive saccharide polymers that consist of D-glucose units linked primarily by alpha-1-4 bonds, having a DE less than 20. Rice maltodextrin is formed by partial hydrolysis of rice starch with natural enzymes followed by an addition of heat-stable enzymes that make up the final product. Maltodextrins are generally recognized as safe (GRAS) as direct human food ingredients at levels consistent with current good manufacturing practices.

Application:

Rice Maltodextrin in Beverages:

Rice Maltodextrin makes a great sugar substitute for people trying to watch their weights. Rice Maltodextrin is commonly used as a drying agent in flavored powders, coffee mixes and chocolate drinks. It is easily digestible, and serves as a great source of protein in energy drinks. Rice Maltodextrin is also used as a popular bulking agent in protein shakes used by body-builders or athletes, owing to its excelling viscosity and color controlling capabilities.

Rice Maltodextrin in Baking and Confectionary:

Rice Maltodextrin can enhance texture in cakes, biscuits, muffins and various other products. It behaves as pseudo-fat that is low in calories, but serves as a key component in curbing water and providing a richer mouthfeel. Rice Maltodextrin remains a popular choice when a texture has to be maintained, increasing its use to a wide variety of products.

Rice Maltodextrin as a Bulking and Coating Agent

Rice Maltodextrin is commonly used in baking mixes and powdered mixes, along with being commonly used in soups and condiments as a thickener. The carbohydrates present in Rice Maltodextrin provide nutritional value and help thicken sauces, soups and gravies. Furthermore, Rice Maltodextrin is also used as a coating material for baked goods and pharmaceutical products.
