Approved Ingredients


Maltodextrin is a white, powdery carbohydrate that can be used as a base in toothpaste tablets. It is derived from starchy foods, such as corn, rice, or potatoes, through a process that breaks down the starch molecules into smaller chains of glucose molecules.

Maltodextrin is highly soluble in water and has a neutral taste and odour, making it an ideal ingredient for toothpaste tablets that aim to be both effective and palatable. It can also improve the mouthfeel and texture of the toothpaste tablets, helping them dissolve easily in the mouth and spread evenly across the teeth.

When combined with other ingredients, such as baking soda, silica, and essential oils, maltodextrin helps to create a gentle and effective toothpaste.
