General description

Maltodextrin is a saccharide polymer that can be classified as a carbohydrate. It can be produced by acid hydrolysis of the starch. The powdered material formed after purification and spray drying can be used in a variety of food and beverage products. It can be used as a good source of energy in food products with a value of 16 kJ/g.


Maltodextrin can be used as a binding additive for 3D printing manufacturing. It can be used as a forming agent in the preparation of soya bean sprout extract.

You can contact any of our Customer Sales and Service offices to receive a quote. USA customers: 1-800-325-3010 or view local office numbers.
What is the Department of Transportation shipping information for this product?
Transportation information can be found in Section 14 of the product's (M)SDS.To access the shipping information for this material, use the link on the product detail page for the product.
How does the Dextrose Equivalent value relate to polymer size?
Dextrose equivalency (DE) is inversely related to thesize of the polymer (sugar). For example, a Maltodextrin product with a DE value of 4.0-7.0, such as product 419672, would have a larger molecular size compared to one with a value of 16.5-19.5, like product 419699.
