Insta Rice Trin is an agglomerated or rapidly dispersible optimized version of maltodextrin. Through processing the particles are glued together with bridges in-between allowing moisture to flow in and wet the particle from within. Another characteristic of agglomeration is better flow properties, or the ease of which a powder flows through processing equipment like capsule and tablet machines.

Maltodextrin is a highly functional ingredient which can be produced from a variety of raw materials. Insta rice trin is an agglomerated version produced from rice which is commonly considered label friendly.
