Maltodextrins are glucose polymeric chains with a molecular weight between that of starch and glucose syrups. Cargill offers a broad range of maltodextrin products that vary in the degree of starch hydrolysis and sugar profile. The degree of starch hydrolysis and sugar profile are expressed in the DE (dextrose equivalents) number. Maltodextrins have a DE number ranging from 1 to 19. They are highly water soluble and have less browning effect compared to glucose syrups.

Maltodextrins are available both in powder and liquid form, and act as protective colloids for emulsions as well as emulsion polymerization material. Maltodextrins can also be used as a carrier for granulation of fermentation products.
