What is Maltodextrin
This is a polysaccharide component that acts as a food additive. It is extracted from starch by a process of hydrolysis. It is white in colour. It is easily digested since it is similar to glucose in nature. However, compared to glucose, it is less sweet despite the fact that it is made of sugar molecules. Other than being a common ingredient in processed foods, it is also used to produce soft drinks as well as candy.
