So, what is dextrinas?

Dextrins are a group of low molecular weight carbohydrates that are derived from the hydrolysis of starch. They are commonly used in the food industry as thickeners, binders, and texture enhancers due to their ability to form gels and add viscosity to food products. Dextrins are typically produced by heating starch with acid or enzymes, which breaks down the larger starch molecules into smaller, more soluble components. They can be found in a variety of processed foods, including baked goods, sauces, and snacks, and are also used in the production of some pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
