So, what is potato maltodextrins?

Potato maltodextrins are a versatile food ingredient derived from potatoes that have been enzymatically broken down into shorter chains of glucose molecules. This process yields a white powder that functions as a thickener, binder, and stabilizer in a wide range of food products, including baked goods, sauces, and beverages. Potato maltodextrins offer several advantages over other starch-based thickeners, including a neutral flavor profile, high solubility, and resistance to clumping or gelling. Additionally, they provide a clean label alternative to artificial additives and can improve the texture, mouthfeel, and shelf life of food formulations.
