So, what is maïsmaltodextrine?

Maïsmaltodextrine, also known as maize maltodextrin, is a food ingredient derived from corn starch. It is a white powder that is highly soluble in water and has a slightly sweet taste. Maïsmaltodextrine is often used as a bulking agent in processed foods, such as baked goods, snacks, and powdered beverages. It can also be used as a thickener, stabilizer, or emulsifier in various food products. Due to its low viscosity and neutral flavor, it is ideal for creating smooth textures without altering the taste of the final product. Additionally, maïsmaltodextrine is gluten-free and has a lower glycemic index than regular table sugar, making it a popular alternative sweetener in many health-conscious diets.
