2021-2-05

Polydextrose (CAS Registration Number 68424-04-4)  is an artificial food additive. It is a substitute for sugar, starch and fat in many packaged foods. It can also be used as a leavening agent to enhance food taste and reduce calories. It is also used to increase the fiber content of many products and is classified as dietary fiber on nutrition labels. Although the tolerance is high, excessive consumption of this additive may also cause side effects. Buy Food Grade Polydextrose 68424-04-4


Adverse reactions 

Polydextrose is generally safe when consumed in moderate amounts. However, large intakes may cause side effects such as abdominal cramps and bloating. People who are just starting to add polydextrose to their diet should start with a small amount because it may have a laxative-like effect on new users.


Business use 

Polydextrose is artificially synthesized with glucose, sorbitol and citric acid, and has a wide range of uses in the food industry. It can be used as a humidifier to help maintain food moisture. It can also be used as a stabilizer, thickener or filler to improve the taste and texture of packaged food. Polydextrose is also added to low-fiber foods such as yogurt, pudding, ice cream, biscuits and diet drinks to increase the amount of dietary fiber. This ingredient is slightly sweet and low in calories, so it can reduce the calories of commercial foods without affecting the taste and texture.
