So, what is rice dextrin?

Rice dextrin is a versatile food ingredient derived from rice starch through the process of hydrolysis. It is a white, odorless, and tasteless powder that is soluble in water. Rice dextrin has a high glycemic index, making it a suitable ingredient for sports drinks, energy bars, and other products that require fast-acting carbohydrates. Besides improving texture, rice dextrin can also act as a bulking agent, stabilizer, or thickener in various food and beverage applications. As a gluten-free and non-allergenic ingredient, rice dextrin is an excellent alternative to wheat-based ingredients for people with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.
