It is produced from corn starch and is usually found as a creamy white hygroscopic powder. Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose. It has a Dextrose Equivalent (DE) of 10-25% it provides a convenient way to replete energy reserves. Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate combination that provides long-lasting energy. Maltodextrin powder has a rapid rate of digestion, allowing it to supply additional calories without causing the abdominal discomfort that can be experienced with simple sugars. The body gets energy from Maltodextrin gradually, easily and evenly. Maltodextrin is a white powder and is extremely bland in taste with very little sweetness. When made into a solution, it exhibits very high viscosity although it does not hold water in itself. Its bland taste makes it inert on other food flavours and colours.
