So, what is dextrine de mais?

Dextrine de mais, also known as corn dextrin, is a water-soluble carbohydrate derived from corn starch. It is a white, odorless powder with a mild, slightly sweet taste. Dextrine de mais is commonly used in the food industry as a thickener, stabilizer, and binder in a variety of products such as baked goods, beverages, and snacks. It also acts as a coating agent for some foods to improve texture and appearance. Due to its high solubility and low viscosity, dextrine de mais is an ideal ingredient for making clear, smooth solutions. Additionally, it is a good source of dietary fiber and can be used as a prebiotic to promote digestive health.
