Polydextrose is a low-calorie, low-glycemic index special carbohydrate, containing water-soluble dietary fiber and prebiotics.
It is formed by high temperature melt polycondensation of natural glucose, a small amount of sorbitol and citric acid, and is a polysaccharide composed of randomly cross-linked glucose.
Polydextrose is added to food as a filler, antifreeze, low-temperature protectant, anti-aging agent, dietary fiber, prebiotic components, antiseptic and fresh-keeping, and increase osmotic pressure. It not only provides necessary volume, but also gives realistic texture. And taste, but also to ensure a high-quality fiber source.
Not only hope that normal people who consume low calories and maintain health can eat it, but also special groups such as diabetic people can eat it. It is expected that the use of polydextrose will increase in the future.
