Polydextrose is a white powder or light yellow powder. It is a randomly bonded polymer prepared by the condensation of a melt that consists of approximately 90% D-glucose, 10% sorbitol, and 1% citric acid or 0.1% phosphoric acid on a weight basis. The 1,6-glycosidic linkage predominates in the polymer, but other possible bonds are present. The product contains small quantities of free glucose, sorbitol, and D anhydroglucoses (levoglucosan), with traces of citric acid or phosphoric acid. It may be partially reduced by transition metal catalytic hydrogenation in an aqueous solution. It maybe neutralized with any food-grade base and decolorized and deionized for further purification. It is very soluble in water.
Polydextrose is a water-soluble dietary fiber alias. White or off-white solids, soluble in water, the solubility of 70%, 10% aqueous solution of the PH value of 2.5-7.0, no special taste, is a kind of health functional food components, can add the human body needs water-soluble dietary fiber. After entering the human digestive system it produce specific physiological and metabolic functions, thus preventing constipation and fat deposition.
The sugar polymer, polydextrose, because of its bulking properties, is used to replace a number of the technical effects of sucrose in various applications, i.e. baked goods, salad dressings, frozen desserts, and candies. It is a unique reduced-calorie (one calorie/gram) bulking agent that can be used to substitute sugars and, in some instances fats. Because of its structure, polydextrose is not readily digested, so it is a low-calorie sucrose substitute. Polydextrose is a form of highly soluble fiber used to replace sugar and other high-glycemic carbohydrates. It has a negligible effect on blood sugar levels and a glycemic index of about 5.
