So, what is dekstriini?

Dextrin is a type of carbohydrate derived from starchy foods like corn, potatoes, or rice. It is used as a thickener, binder, and stabilizer in various food products. Dextrin comes in different forms, including white, yellow, or brown powder, with varying degrees of sweetness and solubility. It is often added to processed foods like baked goods, snacks, and sauces to improve texture, shelf life, and flavor. Dextrin is also commonly used in the pharmaceutical industry to create capsules and tablets. Due to its versatility and low cost, dextrin remains a popular ingredient in many food and industrial applications.
