So, what is malto-dextrines?

Malto-dextrins are a type of carbohydrate that are commonly used as food ingredients due to their unique properties. They are derived from starch and have a mild, sweet taste. Malto-dextrins are easily digestible and rapidly absorbed by the body, making them a popular ingredient in sports nutrition products. They also have a low glycemic index, which means they provide a sustained release of energy without causing a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. In addition to their functional properties, malto-dextrins are often used as a bulking agent or thickener in food formulations.
