So, what is dextrins?

Dextrins are a group of complex carbohydrates derived from starches, such as corn, wheat, and potato. These versatile ingredients are commonly used as a thickener, binder, or stabilizer in a wide range of food products. Dextrins can be found in processed foods, baked goods, and even as a coating for fried foods. They are soluble in water and can be easily digested, making them a popular choice in the food industry. Dextrins can also be used to enhance texture, improve shelf life, and reduce fat content in certain foods. Due to their functional properties, dextrins are a valuable ingredient in many food applications.
