Cassava-based maltodextrins with different dextrose equivalent (DE = 5, 10, 15 and 20) were prepared using two different enzymes, namely Termamyl 120L and Ban 480L (Novo Nordisk, Denmark). The molecular distribution oligosaccharide component (DP 1 – 7) was characterized and compared with commercial corn-based maltodextrin of the same DE. For all DE’s, cassava-based maltodextrins prepared by Termamyl enzyme comprised more high molecular weight saccharides than corn-based maltodextrins. The profiles of saccharide component of cassava-based maltodextrin from Ban were comparable to those of corn-based ones. The shape and size of maltodextrins from two starch bases were different, presumably due to different processing. Corn-based maltodextrins were bigger in size. However, most properties including moisture content, water sorption and viscosity of both cassava- and corn-based maltodextrins were similar.
