Pack Bond Dextrin

Dextrin   are a group of low-molecular-weight carbohydrates produced by the hydrolysis of starch   or glycogen.  Dextrins  are mixtures of polymers of D-glucose units linked by a-(1,4) or a-(1,6) glycosidic bonds.

Dextrins can be produced from starch using enzymes like amylases, as during digestion in the human body and during malting and mashing, or by applying dry heat with catalyst.


Dextrins are white, yellow or brown powders that are partially or fully water-soluble, yielding optically active solutions of low viscosity.  Most can be detected with iodine solution, giving a red coloration; one distinguishes erythrodextrin (dextrin that colours red) and achrodextrin  (giving no colour).


We manufacture white, yellow and cannery brown dextrins from both  Tapioca and Maize Starch.  White dextrin has solubility from 30% to 90% in hot water only.  Yellow dextrin has solubility of 98% in hot or cold water.




Yellow dextrin are used as water-soluble glues in remoistable envelope adhesives and paper tubes, in the mining industry as additives in froth flotation, in the foundry industry as green strength additives in sand casting, as printing thickener for batik resist dyeing and as binders in gouache paint.


White dextrin are used as:


A crispness enhancer for food processing,  in food batters, coatings and glazes and many more uses.

At PAP, quality is given major importance while formulating the starch based products. We apply the latest techniques for quality assurance and production control and continue with efforts to improve standards even further. A team of experts monitors the entire process to check the quality at all the levels.
