Carbohydrates comprise greater than 90% of the dry matter of plants. They are abundant, widely available and generally inexpensive. They are common constituent of foods, both as natural components and as added ingredients. They have many molecular structures, sizes and shapes and exhibit a variety of chemical and physical properties. They can also be chemically, physically and mechanically modified to improve their properties. They range from simple sugars, to a range of oligomers (oligosaccharides) or polymers (polysaccharides). These form a diverse range of products from Dextrose, starches, pectins through to fibres and various plant gums. We can offer a range of products to meet your formulation requirements.
