So, what is destrine?

Dextrin is a type of carbohydrate that is commonly used in the food industry as a thickener, stabilizer, or binding agent. It is derived from starch and is created by breaking down the long chains of glucose molecules into shorter chains. Dextrin is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of food products, including baked goods, snacks, sauces, and beverages. It is often used as a coating for fried foods to give them a crispy texture or as a filler in processed meats to improve texture and reduce cost. Dextrin is also sometimes used in dietary supplements as a source of soluble fiber.
