Food grade sweeteners are sugars that have been processed to be used in food preparation. They can be in the form of syrups, powders, or granules, and are often used in baking or as a tabletop sweetener. Glucose syrup is a clear, thick liquid made from starch that has been broken down by enzymes. It is used in candy making and as a thickener for pies and sauces. Maltodextrin glucose powder is a white powder made from maltodextrin, which is a type of starch. It is often used as a food additive or to create artificial flavors. Both glucose syrup and maltodextrin glucose powder are considered safe for human consumption and are regulated by the FDA.
Tapioca Glucose Syrup is obtained primarily from tapioca starch through a hydrolysis process using NON-GMO enzymes.
It has a rich flavour and a composition similar to that of sucrose but with higher nutritional value. Low viscosity, high resistance to crystallisation, reduce browning capacity, good heat stability and ability to absorb low levels of air moisture.
A healthier and commercially viable alternative to sugar and corn syrup.
Maltodextrin powder is obtained by the enzymatic conversion of tapioca starch, this process is NON-GMO and NON-radioactive. The powder has a fine white to slightly yellow colour with a lightly sweet taste, free from desirable odours.
Used to improve the texture and mouthfeel of food and beverage products, alternatively used as a filler in sugar substitution and other products.
