The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines maltodextrins, (C6H10O5)n•H2O, CAS Reg. No. 9050-36-6, as non-sweet, nutritive saccharide polymers that consist of D-glucose units linked primarily by alpha-1-4 bonds, having a DE less than 20. They are prepared as a white powder or concentrated solution by partial hydrolysis of corn starch with safe and suitable acids and/or enzymes. Maltodextrins are generally recognized as safe (GRAS) ingredients at levels consistent with current good manufacturing practices (21 CFR 184.1444). Maltodextrins have both Food Chemical Codex and National Formulary monographs.

Corn syrup solids, (C6H10O5)n•H2O, CAS Reg. No. 68131-37-3, are defined by the FDA as dried glucose syrup (21 CFR 168.121) in which the reducing sugar content is 20 DE or higher. Corn syrup solids are generally recognized as safe (GRAS) as direct human food ingredients at levels consistent with current good manufacturing practices (21 CFR 184.1865). Corn Syrup Solids are covered by a monograph in Food Chemical Codex under “Glucose Syrup, Dried,” and by an NF monograph listed as “Corn Syrup Solids.”

Corn starch is a Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) food ingredient.

Food starch-modified is not regulated under the GRAS regulations, but it is approved as a food additive under 21CFR 172.892. All the food modified starches that are manufactured at Grain Processing Corporation are made in accordance with this regulation.

GPC USP starches are manufactured under current GMPs to meet the requirements set forth in the specific USP monograph for that starch.
