So, what is maltodextrine du maïs?

Maltodextrin is a carbohydrate derived from corn starch. It's a white, odorless powder that's used as a food additive to enhance texture, improve shelf life, and thicken or stabilize products. Maltodextrin is made by breaking down corn starch through a process called hydrolysis, which creates shorter chains of glucose molecules. This makes it easily digestible and absorbed by the body. It's commonly used in sports drinks, energy bars, and other processed foods as a source of quick energy. Maltodextrin du maïs is simply maltodextrin made from corn, which is a common source for this ingredient.
