Resistant Destrin


  • Resistant Destrin is a white to light yellow powder, and it is a kind of water-soluble dietary fiber that is made of non-genetically modified natural corn starch as a raw material, after a certain degree of hydrolysis, polymerization, separation and other steps. Its low calorie content, good solubility, and slight sweetness and odor, remain stable under conditions of high temperature, variable pH, moist environment, and high cutting force. Can be used in food, beverages, powder capsules and other processed products. A large number of studies have shown that resistant dextrin is a natural product that integrates various functions such as regulating intestinal health, preventing and treating cardiovascular diseases, benefit of prebiotics, and blood sugar lowering.

Functional characteristics:

1.Good processing stability.
The resistant dextrin has processing characteristics such as heat resistance, acid resistance, and freeze resistance, and the viscosity of the aqueous solution is very low, and the variation of the viscosity value with changes in the shear rate and temperature is small.

2. Good dissolution, sweet and odorless, does not affect the finished product flavor, can modify the bad flavor, has the function to improve the taste.

3.Low calories, suitable for weight loss people.

Resistant dextrins supply very low, long-lasting energy, increase satiety, delay hunger, and have some effect on weight control. Resistant dextrin has a high tolerated dose, a threshold of 45 grams per day, no symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort, and no diarrhea at doses of 100 grams per day (Van den Heuvel et al., 2004; Vermorel et al., 2004; Lefranc-Millot Et al., 2006b; Pasman et al., 2006)。

4.Adjust blood sugar.
The resistant dextrin is mainly suitable for diabetics to eat by mainly absorbing glucose and inhibiting the activity of amylase, delaying the degradation of starch and absorption of glucose, and inhibiting the increase of blood glucose after meals.

5.The benefits of prebiotics reduce the burden on the intestines and prevent intestinal diseases.
In China, resistant dextrin was identified as a prebiotic product by the “Public Nutrition Improvement Microecological Project” at the end of 2008. Its goal is to increase the use of prebiotics in China to improve intestinal dysbacteriosis, which has been identified as a key sub-health factor. Resistant dextrin ferments in the colon to produce exercise fatty acids, inhibit the growth of spoilage bacteria; as a substrate to promote the proliferation of probiotics, thereby inhibiting the proliferation of pathogenic bacteria, repair intestinal epithelial barrier function, inhibiting tumor cell proliferation, inhibiting carcinogenic chemical activity and antioxidant .

6.Prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
The health effects of the intake of resistant dextrin on serum have been confirmed in mice, chickens, dogs, pigs, and humans. The results show that continuous intake of resistant dextrin can reduce serum cholesterol and neutral fat concentration and body fat , To meet the needs of various hyperlipidemia patients in improving lipid metabolism.

1、 Food: used in dairy foods, meat foods, baked goods, pasta, seasoning foods, etc.
Application in dairy products: resistant dextrins can be simply added to dietary fiber fortified milk beverages like sugar, without affecting the original flavor of the food; resistant dextrins have a similar taste to fat and low calories. It can be used as a substitute for a portion of sugar or fat to prepare low-calorie ice cream, low-fat yogurt drinks, and the like. The addition of resistant dextrin allows the biological functions of lactic acid bacteria, bifidobacteria, and other beneficial intestinal bacteria to be fully utilized. Generated a great effect of multiplication.

Application in infants and young children: Infants and young children, especially bifidobacterium in the body after weaning, are rapidly declining, leading to diarrhea, anorexia, stunting, and reduced utilization of nutrients. Consumption of water-soluble resistant dextrin foods can increase the utilization of nutrients. And promote the absorption of calcium, iron, zinc and other trace elements.

Application in noodles: Adding different types of dietary fiber to bread, taro, rice and noodles can increase and improve bread color. Adding 3% to 6% of the dietary fiber content of the flour can strengthen the dough's gluten and leave the basket. Steamed bread has good taste and special flavor; biscuit baking has very low quality requirements for flour gluten, which facilitates the addition of resistant dextrins in large proportions, and is more conducive to the production of various health-care cookies based on fiber function; cakes are produced in the production process. A large amount of moisture will solidify into a soft product when baking, affecting the quality, water-soluble resistant dextrin added to the cake, can keep the product soft and moist, increase the shelf life, extend the shelf storage time

Application in meat products: Resistant dextrin as a dietary fiber can absorb aromas and prevent the volatilization of aroma substances. The addition of a certain amount of dietary fiber can increase the product yield, enhance the taste and quality; The water-soluble dietary fiber can be used as an excellent fat substitute to produce high protein, high dietary fiber, low fat, low salt, low calorie and health care Functional ham.

2、Medicines: health foods, fillers, pharmaceutical raw materials, etc.
3、Industrial manufacturing: petroleum, manufacturing, agricultural products, batteries, precision castings, etc.
4、Tobacco products: flavored, antifreeze moisturizers that can replace glycerin as cut tobacco.
5、Cosmetics: facial cleansers, beauty creams, lotions, shampoos, masks, etc.
6、Feed: Canned pets, animal feed, aquatic feed, vitamin feed, veterinary medicine products, etc.
