Our Rice Maltodextrins, Oligodextrins and Syrup Solids are spray-dried powders formed from all natural rice syrups. The complex carbohydrates in these powders provide a slow, steady release of energy into the bloodstream. These Dry Solids contribute functionality by providing sweetness, as well as body and mouth feel without affecting taste. They also make excellent bulking agents and carriers for flavorings, spices, sweeteners and pharmaceuticals. Our Dextrins range from as low as 5 DE to 19 DE, our Syrup Solids range from 20DE to 45DE and our Dextrose is 95DE.

Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide that is used as a food additive. It is produced from starch by partial hydrolysis and is usually found as a white hygroscopic spray-dried powder. Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose and might be either moderately sweet or almost flavorless – depending on the degree of polymerization.
Moreover, Rice Maltodextrin enjoys a lower molecular weight, allowing it to be mixed easily with other ingredients. It also helps improve specific gravity and mouthfeel and retains texture even in applications with minimal fat content.
