Organic maltodextrin is a plant-sourced sweetener made from corn starch. It is generally used to thicken or as a filler to increase the volume of processed foods. Less than 20% sugar, it is used to boost up carbohydrate counts for patients who are diabetic or insulin resistance.

Our organic maltodextrin is a flavorless, easily digested carbohydrate made from corn starch. The starch is cooked, and then acid and/or enzymes (a process similar to that used by the body to digest carbohydrates) are used to break the starch into smaller chains (3-20 chains in maltodextrin). These chains are composed of several dextrose molecules held together by very weak hydrogen bonds.
