So, what is potato maltodextrin?

Potato maltodextrin is a common food ingredient derived from the starch of potatoes. It is a white powder that is easily soluble in water, with a neutral taste and odor. Potato maltodextrin is a carbohydrate that is commonly used as a thickener, filler, or bulking agent in processed foods. It is often added to products such as instant puddings, cake mixes, and snack foods to improve their texture and mouthfeel. Unlike regular maltodextrin, potato maltodextrin is made without the use of corn, making it a suitable option for those with corn allergies or intolerances.
