These are carbohydrates. They have the same formula as starch. It is a byproduct of hydrolysis of starch. They are produced generally by acidic hydrolysis of potato starch. Dextrins are basically water soluble.
It should not be confused with maltodextrin. Maltodextrin is a refined form of corn starch that is quickly metabolized in the human body.
