Dextrin is a polysaccharide, dietary supplement E 1400. It is a homogeneous powder of white, yellow or yellow color. The production of the food additive E1400 is carried out in two ways: by partially distributing the moist starch or by exposing the dry starch to a temperature of 200 degrees.
As a starch processing product, potato or corn dextrin is better absorbed in the body than conventional starch and is a nutrient that the human body uses to produce energy.
The chemical formula is (C6H10O5) n, where n is the number of polymerizations.
