About Polydextrose: The Basics

Polydextrose is a food ingredient often used in diet and health food applications.

Known for its soluble fiber characteristics, polydextrose is used to reduce calories and substitute glucose by replacing sugar, increasing fiber content, and reducing fat.

Synthesized from dextrose and sorbitol (and 1% citric acid), polydextrose was approved by the FDA in 1981. (E number: E1200.)

Originally developed in Europe, polydextrose is now available worldwide.

Where Is Polydextrose Used?

Polydextrose is a versatile ingredient with many uses. Among them, sugar-free, low-carb, and diabetic food products often use polydextrose to control fat content, replace sugar and starches, and boost fiber.

Polydextrose can also be used as a thickening agent, stabilizer, and humectant.

Puddings, gelatins, soft drinks, hard candies, and many other sweets can use polydextrose in place of sugar for those needing a diet or diabetic alternative. Some food makers even add small amounts to stews and soups as a thickener and as a good source of fiber.
