Good for adding mouth feel and body to extract brews without affecting flavor. Maltodextrin is added to the wort at the same time as the extracts. Maltodextrin is a chain between 4 and 20 dextrose units in length making it only 3% fermentable by brewer's yeast. It is naturally present in finished beers, up to 6% by weight. It is often also referred to as Dextrin Powder and sometimes Dextrine Powder.
Our maltodextrin is composed of .5% dextrose, 2.5% Maltose, 3.5% maltoriose, 93.5% higher saccaharides, and is made from corn. It is also available by the pound or even the sack.
Since maltodextrins are easily digestible carbohydrates, some long range cyclists and work out enthusiasts mix maltodextrin with water as an energy source.
