Dextrin CFR

According to the CFR, dextrin is a starch made from heating any of the following starches: corn, waxy maize, waxy milo, potato, arrowroot, wheat, rice, tapioca, or sage.

  • For FDA-regulated foods, if dextrin used in a food product contains protein derived from wheat, the word wheat must be stated on the food label.
  • For USDA-regulated foods, dextrin could contain protein derived from wheat, and this might not be stated on the food label.
  • Bottom line: If you don't see the word wheat on the label of an FDA-regulated food product containing dextrin, the dextrin does not contain wheat protein. Dextrin in a USDA-regulated product could contain protein derived from wheat.
