So, what is polidekstroza?

Polidekstroza is a highly versatile food ingredient that is commonly used as a bulking agent, sweetener or carrier in processed foods. It is a modified form of cornstarch that has been treated with acids and enzymes to break down the longer glucose chains into shorter ones. This process results in a fine, white powder that is virtually tasteless and odorless. Polidekstroza has excellent water solubility, which makes it ideal for use in low-calorie foods and beverages. Additionally, it can help improve the texture, stability and shelf-life of products. Overall, polidekstroza offers a cost-effective solution for food manufacturers looking to enhance their products' nutritional value and sensory properties.
