MALTODEXTRIN: SAFE OR NOT?Posted August 13, 2019
Have you heard of maltodextrin and wonder what is it? Maltodextrin is one of the component of our favourite natural sugar substitute, Green Stevia.
Maltodextrin is an easily digestible carbohydrate made from starch of rice, corn, or potato. It is widely used as a food additive specifically as a filler to numerous food products such as nutritional formulas for diabetic, instant oatmeal, powdered juices, and many more.
Maltodextrin is approved by U.S. Food and Drug Administration as SAFE FOOD ADDITIVE. Based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, carb intake must not be more than 45% to 65% of your overall calorie consumption. If you are Diabetic, you should include Maltodextrin in your total carb count intake per day.
Is GREEN STEVIA safe for Diabetic?
The amount of maltodextrin present in one sachet of Green Stevia is less than 1 gram only and insignificant to cause spike in blood sugar levels, that is why, Green Stevia is safe for individuals with Diabetes. Based on Nutrition Facts Analysis by Sentrotek, it has Zero Calories and Zero Sugar per serving. Also, maltodextrin is safe as food additive and does not have a laxative effect which can be found in using fillers like Erythritol. So if you are a coffee lover and consumes coffee on an average of 3 cups per day and use GREEN STEVIA, it will only contribute 1.06% to your total calorie intake per day.
To sum up, GREEN STEVIA is the healthy solution to sugar substitution.
Make GREEN STEVIA a part of your daily life so you can enjoy life’s sweet precious moments without the worries!
