Maltodextrin (Engl)

Maltodextrin is an easily digestible carbohydrate made from rice, corn or potato starch. It's a white powder used in processed foods as a thickener, or a filler since it's fairly inexpensive.
Its flavor can be slightly sweet or almost flavorless. It is also used as a thickener for soups, gravies, and salad dressings.

Will Goldfarb introduces tapioca maltodextrin, an ingredient commonly used in restaurant kitchens to turn fats into powders. Goldfarb demonstrates how tapioca maltodextrin can turn a homemade chocolate-hazelnut-praline spread into “nutella soil”, which can be sprinkled on toast, cereal, ice cream, and many other desserts.
