Rice Maltodextrins:

Rice Maltodextrin is a commonly used food additive which is produced by putting rice starch through a partial hydrolysis. The complex carbohydrates in these powders provide a slow, steady release of energy into the bloodstream. Maltodextrins 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 Rice Maltodextrins range from as low as 5 DE to 19 DE.

More about Rice Maltodextrins:

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.
