Is dextrin gluten free?
Dextrin–particularly white dextrin–is a carbohydrate produced by the hydrolysis of starch. It’s used as a crispness enhancer in food batters, coatings, and glazes. It can be made from corn, potato, arrowroot, wheat, rice, or tapioca starch. Dextrin is rarely made from wheat starch, but if it is, this should be indicated on the product label. If it’s made from wheat, it is not gluten free.
