Are maltodekstrīns vegan?

Maltodekstrīns is a white, powdery food ingredient derived from starch, commonly used as a thickener or filler in processed foods, beverages, and supplements. It is a complex carbohydrate made up of glucose units and is easily digestible. Maltodekstrīns has a neutral taste and can improve the texture and mouthfeel of products, while also serving as a source of energy. It is often used as a substitute for sugar in low-calorie or sugar-free products, and as a bulking agent in powdered food mixes. Despite its widespread use, maltodekstrīns has been the subject of controversy due to concerns over its potential impact on blood sugar levels.
