FAO/WHO (1984, g/kg): for broth, soup, the value should be according to GMI; cheese (in the cream mixture): 5; the sweetened yogurt and its products after being subject to the heat treatment: 10; mackerel and fish canned: 60 (Only in the packaging material); cold drink: 30.
It is obtained from using natural starch originated from cereals or rhizome plants (E.g., corn, sorghum, potato, bamboo, wheat, rice, cassava, sago, etc.) as raw materials which are heated in the presence of suitable food-grade acids and buffers, leading to partial hydrolysis to obtain it. Drying method: apply hydrochloric acid (≤ 0.15%) or orthophosphoric acid (≤ 0.17%) treatment.
Enzymatic method: take the natural starch of corn, wheat and dried potato as raw material, use 0.15% hydrochloric acid or 0.17% phosphoric acid for heat treatment, and apply starch partial degradation to derive the products.
- It can be used as emulsifying stabilizers and thickeners, adhesives and surface decorators.
- It can be applied to the pharmaceutical industry, protective adhesives and suspending agents, adhesives. For example, it can be applied to the sizing treatment of paper, textile sizing and ink preparation; it can also be used as a drug excipient and a substitute of the Arabic gum.
ADI does not make special provisions (FAO/WHO, 2001).
GRAS (FDA, § 184.1277, 2000);
Take about 1 g sample and suspend it in 20ml of water. Add a few drops of iodine test solution (TS-124), which should then appear dark blue color to reddish brown color. The infrared absorption spectrum should be consistent with Figure 10107.
It appears as white, yellow or brown flowing powder. Dextrin of relatively small molecular weight is completely soluble in water to form viscous slurry; dextrin with relatively large molecular mass is not completely soluble in water. ADI is not subject to special provisions (FAO/WHO, 1994).
