Research and Markets: Dextrins Processing and Food/Industrial Applications 2012


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Dextrins Processing and Food/Industrial Applications 2012" report to their offering.

This latest revision of dextrin report is enhanced to include several areas pertinent to current situation and opportunities. Dextrins belong to a class of low-molecular-weight carbohydrates degradation products madefrom starch manufactured by a process called pyrolysis.

This report provides critical information on dextrin process, products, brief properties, industry volume, price estimates and the end user applications properties with key customers. Report also includes timely information regarding selected current research activities (who is doing what?) and list of pertinent patents. Total market for pyrodextrins fir food and industrial sectors in the US for 2011 is estimated to be - 173 million lbs. /as indicated above food sector amounts to - 39 million lbs. Majority of dextrin produced is consumed in the industrial segments as adhesives and binder for numerous products from bag adhesives, industrial, consumer tapes, wall papers, foundries, etc.

Resistant dextrins or resistant maltodextrins (RS dextrins) are mixed and random glycosidic linkages -1-4 and 1-6 glucosidic bonds from starch and 1-2 and 1-3 bonds, from transglucosidation. Produced by pyrolysis of corn starch with HCl, further enzymatic hydrolyzed. These are partially digestible with laxation and colonic fermentation and effects on lipid levels. Promoted in Nutritional beverages, functional foods, and low viscosity fiber source. Applications have expanded into dairy, soy milk among many other products with fiber claims.

Report also includes latest research and technology developments and most recent patents issued in the areas of dextrins, resistant dextrins and applications.
