N-Zorbit M Tapioca Maltodextrin is extracted from tapioca using a natural enzymatic process. It has a neutral smell and taste which imparts no extra flavor in food when used as additive material.
Tapioca Maltodextrin (AKA malto or maltosec) has a smooth texture that makes it an ideal fat substitute in desserts and sauces. It is often used as a vegan gelatin.
In molecular gastronomy and modernist cooking, Tapioca Maltodextrin (specifically N-Zorbit M) is used to powder fats. N Zorbit M can transform anything with enough fat into a melt-in-your-mouth powder. You can even turn non-fat liquids into powder just by adding heavy cream.
Some common powder flavors derived from tapioca maltodextrin N-Zorbit M are caramel, nutella, peanut butter, and even bacon!
To make most powders, start with about 40% Tapioca Maltodextrin N-Zorbit M. Add more in small quantities until you reach your desired consistency. It’s that easy!
Note: This product is N-Zorbit M. There are other types of tapioca maltodextrin, but only N-Zorbit M can be used to powder fats and oils.
