Maltodextrin is a common food additive used in my products. It can be found in everything from potato chips to taffy; but where does maltodextrin come from? Is maltodextrin vegan?
Maltodextrin is vegan. Maltodextrin is a chemical derived from starch. It can be extracted from any source of starch. In the U.S. maltodextrin is primarily sourced from corn; in the U.K. and other parts of Europe is is typically derived from wheat.
