Humectants are ingredients that retains and absorbs moisture from surrounding (air) into the object’s surface. It keeps the surface of the object hydrated. Humectants can be used as food additives as it increases shelf life of food by determining and controlling physical properties, chemical changes and microbial activity, as these activities can reduce shelf life of food products. Humectants can be corn derived as well. Corn consists of maltodextrin, which is enzymatically derived from starch. One of the major application of maltodextrin is that it acts as humectants in confectionery products by performing the role of fat replacers and nutrition supplements. A corn consists of 15% moisture, which makes it a rich source of humectant. Humectants in food regulates the moisture content, and as a result, makes the food soft and easy to chew. Thus, in this way corn derived humectants is gaining importance in food application, which is driving the market growth.
