So, what is maltodekstryny?

Maltodextrins are derived from starches such as corn or rice, and are commonly used in food production as a thickener, sweetener or filler, due to their easy digestibility, low sweetness levels and neutral flavor profile. Maltodextrins are comprised of chains of glucose molecules, ranging in length from three to 20 units, and can be modified to achieve specific functional properties such as solubility or viscosity. Maltodextrins are often found in processed foods, sports supplements and infant formulas, and may also be used as an alternative to sugar in some applications.
