Maltodextrin in 1kg tub. Maltodextrin is produced from wheat starch - however it contains very very low amounts of gluten. It is a carbohydrate with high glycemic index which means it is a fast way to replenish glycogen for athletes and is generally considered a better way to replenish energy stores than glucose sugar.

  • It is one of the most commonly used ingredients in the food industry, where it is mainly used as a bulking agent or flavour carrier. It can be used to increase volumes of dry mixes.

  • Thickening:
  • It can be added to almost any liquid (hot or cold) as an easy way to thicken - it doesn't make foods lumpy like corn starch.

  • Lock in Flavours to Oils:
  • Maltodextrin has the useful ability to absorb fats and turn them into a paste - or into a dry powder that contains a high proportion of oil. So you can add flavouring to vegetable oils and create flavoured dry powders for dusting, flavoured crumbs, flavoured paste or even make a flavoured 'pastry'.

  • Dispersal Agent:
  • If added to dry ingredients it will bond with them which means you can use it to prevent ingredients which quickly absorb water from going lumpy when added to a liquid.

  • Sugar Replacement:
  • Maltodextrin is a carbohydrate like sugar but it is not sweet. Therefore it can be used to replace sugar as a functional ingredient where not sweetness is not required.

  • About Special Ingredients
    Set up by food ingredients experts to focus on the growing demand from chefs for access to ingredients which until very recently had only been used by large food companies. From their factory in Derbyshire they now blend, prepare and produce a huge range of flavours and ingredients which you will now find in many of the top commercial kitchens around the world. In fact, if you saw the recent Bradley Cooper film 'Burnt', you will have noticed a lot of Special Ingredients products used in the kitchens!
    Special Ingredients works closely with Westminster Kingsway College where they sponsor the Culinary Science & Kitchen Innovation Laboratory. Feedback from students using their products is used to develop new and exciting blends and innovative products.
    Director Dan Booth says:
    I like nothing better than developing new products. Working with Dr Rachel Edwards-Stuart has given additional scientific support to innovate and create completely new ingredients that satisfy the increasingly technical demands of todays chefs.
