GLUCIDEX«

Large family of maltodextrins or spray-dried glucose syrups

Roquette

Hydrolysis of starch polymers results in soluble glucose syrups of increasing sweetness, increased osmolarity and reduced viscosity; spray drying is later required to guarantee the stability of such hydrolysis products.

Description

Maltodextrins are starch hydrolysis products with a dextrose equivalent (D.E.) of 20 and below.

Dried glucose syrups have a dextrose equivalent (D.E.) greater than 20.
