Sosa Maltodextrin is a carbohydrate obtained from cornstarch molecules, in this case those of tapioca, which have been broken down. It has low sweetening power and does not add calories. It is employed as a bulking agent, but can also absorb oils. Used in the food industry in the preparation of beverages, dairy products, candies, soups, and so on. Presentation in a very fine powder, malto is readily soluble when cold or hot. It becomes a manipulable powder when mixed with oil (2 parts Maltodextrine to 1 part oil) and dissolves completely on contact with any aqueous medium. Can be used as a replacement for sugar in savoury ice cream or sorbet.
