Maltodextrin is widely used in beverage, frozen food, candy, cereal, dairy products, health care products and other industries, as well as in textile, daily chemical and pharmaceutical production.
When used in solid drinks, such as milk tea, fruit crystal, instant tea and solid tea, it can maintain the characteristics and flavor of the original product, reduce the cost, the product has mellow and delicate taste, strong flavor, excellent instant effect and inhibit crystallization. Good emulsifying effect and obvious carrier effect. The reference dosage is 10% ~ 30%. The maltodextrin of de24 ~ 29 suitable for the production of coffee partner can be used as much as 70%.
It is used in fruit juice drinks, such as coconut milk, peanut almond dew and various lactic acid drinks. It has strong emulsifying ability, the original nutritional flavor of fruit juice remains unchanged, easy to be absorbed by the human body, improved viscosity, pure products, good stability and difficult to precipitate. For sports drinks, maltodextrin is used in the metabolism of human body. The supply and consumption of heat energy is easy to maintain balance, and the load of gastrointestinal digestion and absorption is small. The reference dosage is 5% ~ 15%.
Maltodextrin added to milk powder and other dairy products can make the product volume expand, not easy to agglomerate, instant, good mixing, prolong the shelf life of the product, reduce the cost and improve the economic benefit. It can also improve the nutritional ratio, improve the nutritional price, and be easy to digest and absorb. The role of maltodextrin in the preparation of functional milk powder, especially sucrose free milk powder and infant feeding milk powder, has been confirmed. Dosage: 5% ~ 20%.
It is used in nutritious snack foods such as soybean milk powder, instant cereal and wheat milk essence.

Candy and Biscuits:
When used in candy, it can increase the toughness of candy, prevent sand return and aging, and improve the structure. Reduce candy sweetness, reduce dental disease, reduce tooth sticking, improve flavor, prevent deliquescence and prolong shelf life. The dosage is generally 10% ~ 30%.
It is used for biscuits or other convenient foods, with full shape, smooth surface, clear color and good appearance effect. The product is crisp and delicious, moderate sweetness, no teeth, no residue, few defective products and long shelf life. Dosage: 5% ~ 10%.
