Maltodextrin [(C6 H10O5)nH2O] is defined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a mixture of nutritious, non-sweet to slightly sweet carbohydrates, with varying degrees of polymerization, consisting of D-glucose units linked by α(1,4) glucosidic linkages and α(1,6) are connected and have DE <20, they are defined. maltodextrin; It is a complex carbohydrate, although it has a relatively high glycemic index, meaning that it is quickly absorbed by the body in a similar way to dextrose, raising blood sugar levels and causing a rapid increase in energy levels and replenishing glycogen quickly after consumption. Maltodextrins are presented as white powder or concentrated solutions and are generally classified as safe additives (GRAS:Generally Recognized As Safe). The average molecular weight and degree of hydrolysis of maltodextrins change with dextrose equivalent (DE), in other words, The DE value of maltodextrin generally varies between 3 and 20 and can be grouped into three categories: low, medium and high DE value. The choice of DE value depends on the desired final product formulation. In general, a higher DE value means an increase in sweetness. , more solubility, more moisture absorption, better flavor enhancement, lower viscosity, better stability due to less tendency to retrogradation, lower molecular weight and lower amount of turbidity. In the final products, the body, mouthfeel, viscosity will be improved and more stable. Because maltodextrins are usually a mixture of various sugar molecules such as glucose to long polymer chains (linear and branched), so samples with the same dextrose equivalent but from different manufacturing companies can have different physical and functional characteristics. Maltodextrins that have different DE values , show different physicochemical properties. Maltodextrin is often combined with dextrose to optimize glycogen storage and function. Maltodextrins can also act as fat and sugar substitutes and are important in low-calorie foods. They are gluten-free, so they are ideal for use in the bakery industry and gluten-free foods.
