Organic tapioca maltodextrin, dextrose and syrup solids are powdered ingredients produced from organic tapioca starch using enzymes. Although produced using a similar process, each ingredient has a different nutritional profile with unique functionality.
TapiOK® organic tapioca maltodextrin naturally absorbs oil and can transform it into a powder, making it useful as a carrier for powdered flavors and colors. It is commonly used for spray drying ingredients like sunflower oil or coconut oil to create powdered oils used in instant puddings, coffee creamers, and infant formulas. With excellent fat mimicking properties, maltodextrin is also useful in reduced fat dairy and non-dairy applications, creating a familiar mouthfeel without the added fat.
Maltodextrin has excellent binding properties and acts as a texture modifier in gummy and jelly candies to replace more expensive hydrocolloids and gums. It helps create a glossy film in panned confections and lozenges.
Conventional non-GMO tapioca maltodextrin is also available.
