Polydextrose is majorly made from dextrose and carbohydrates that form together to create a polymer. Polydextrose is made from naturally occurring components. Due to the complicated linkage distribution in its branched structure, polydextrose is responsible for the restriction in the digestion in the upper gastrointestinal tract. Since, polydextrose is partially fermented in the gut, the same has an energy value of 1 kcal/gm.
Read report Overview-
Polydextrose is a food ingredient that is considered as the synthetic polymer of glucose. Food and Drug Association of the United States and Health Canada classified polydextrose as a food ingredient classified as soluble fiber in 2013. The main function of polydextrose is to increase the non-dietary fiber content of the food and act as a sugar substitute and reduce the calorie content in food. Taste and texture play an important role among the consumers and they are attracted specifically to healthy beverage products.
Polydextrose has high solubility and rheological properties that are similar to sucrose thus showing high versatility. Such ingredient adds desirable texture to liquids such as yogurt, dairy drinks, sauces and dressings and also reduces calories and sugar content. Polydextrose works are added to foods that require bulking agents or the foods that have high-fat content and sugar.
