So, what is isomalto?

Isomalto, also known as isomaltodextrin, is a food ingredient that is commonly used as a low-calorie sweetener and a bulking agent. It is derived from starch and is made up of glucose molecules that are linked together in a way that makes them resistant to digestion in the small intestine. Isomalto has a mild sweetness and can be used in a variety of food products such as baked goods, confections, and beverages. It is also known for its ability to improve the texture and mouthfeel of foods while reducing their calorie content. Additionally, isomalto is often used as a prebiotic, as it is resistant to digestion and can help promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut.
