Structure of Maltodextrin

Maltodextrin consists of d-glucose linked to variable length chain units. The glucose unit is mainly related to α (1 → 4) Glycosidic bond. Maltodextrin usually consists of a mixture of chains whose length varies from 3 to 17 glucose units.

Maltodextrin is classified according to DE (dextrose equivalent), and DE is between 3 and 20. The higher the DE value, the shorter the glucose chain, the higher the sweetness, solubility, and heat resistance. Above DE 20, EU CN code calls it Glucose syrup. Maltodextrin is classified as dextrin in the customs CN code nomenclature of DE 10 or below.
