What is Orytrin?

Orytrin or Rice maltodextrin is a carbohydrate obtained from hydrolyzing rice flour into Rice Syrups which is  then subjected to a spray drying technique to create fine, soluble solids. Due to their short-chain structure, rice maltodextrins are easily digestible and act as a valuable source of energy.

Production Process: Hydrolysis and Spray Drying

The production of orytrin begins with hydrolyzing rice flour, breaking down the starch into shorter chains of dextrins. The resulting rice syrup is rich in maltodextrins, oligosaccharides, and glucose. This natural syrup is then carefully dried using the spray drying method. The spray drying process involves spraying the liquid rice syrup into a hot-air chamber, where it rapidly dries, forming a fine powder.

Variability in DE Levels

Our Maltodextrin are available in a range of DE levels, each with distinct characteristics and functionalities. DE, or Dextrose Equivalent, is a measurement of the reducing sugar content in the maltodextrin and indicates its sweetness and solubility. A higher DE value implies a sweeter taste and better solubility in water.

Low DE (10-12 DE)

These maltodextrins have a lower sweetness level and are often used in products where a minimal impact on sweetness is desired. They are commonly employed in applications like infant formula, sports nutrition products, and pharmaceutical formulations.

Medium DE (14-16 DE)

Orytrin with a moderate DE level strike a balance between sweetness and other functional properties. They are frequently used in various food products, such as soups, sauces, and desserts, as they contribute to desirable texture and mouthfeel. 

High DE (18-19 DE)

The rice maltodextrins with a higher DE value offer a sweeter taste and are preferred in applications where sweetness is a key factor, like in beverages, confectioneries, and certain baked goods.

Applications of Rice Maltodextrin

Orytrin’s versatility and neutral flavor profile have made it a popular choice among food manufacturers. Some of its common applications include:

  1. Beverages: Rice maltodextrin is widely used in powdered beverages and sports drinks to improve solubility and texture, ensuring a smooth and consistent product.

  2. Baked Goods: In baked goods like bread and cakes, rice maltodextrin enhances moisture retention and extends shelf life.

  3. Dairy Products: Rice maltodextrin finds application in dairy products like ice creams and yogurts, acting as a stabilizer and preventing the formation of ice crystals.

  4. Seasoning Blends: It is utilized in dry seasoning blends to prevent caking and ensure a free-flowing product.

  5. Nutritional Supplements: Rice maltodextrin is a common ingredient in nutritional supplements, owing to its rapid digestion and energy-providing properties.

Why Choose Rice Maltodextrin?

  • Natural Origin: Orytrin is derived from natural rice syrups, making it an appealing choice for consumers seeking clean-label and natural products.

  • Digestibility: The shorter chain structure of rice maltodextrin makes it easily digestible, making it suitable for individuals with sensitive digestive systems.

  • Texture and Mouthfeel: It improves the texture and mouthfeel of various food products, enhancing the overall sensory experience.

  • Solubility: Rice maltodextrin has excellent solubility, making it a valuable ingredient in powdered and instant formulations.

  • Gluten-Free and Non-Allergenic: It is gluten-free and non-allergenic, making it safe for individuals with gluten sensitivities and common allergies.

In conclusion, orytrin is a natural and versatile spray dried solid that finds application in numerous food and beverage products. The production process involving hydrolysis and spray drying ensures the retention of its natural goodness. With varying DE levels available, manufacturers can choose the most suitable orytrin to meet their specific product requirements. Whether it’s improving texture, enhancing solubility, or providing a source of energy, rice maltodextrin continues to be a valuable ingredient in the food industry.
