# How to dissolve white dextrin in water?

Dextrin is labelled as highly soluble in water. I have white dextrin (analytical from Sigma Aldrich). When I mix it in water, no matter how long I stir and how little dextrin I put, I get a suspension. The dextrin does not dissolve.

I am not a "real" chemist. If I search on Google with keyword such as dextrin water solution, nothing pops up, except that dextrin is highly soluble in water.

I must miss something obvious. I just don't know what. If someone could point me in the right direction...

If the main goal is to get a homogeneous solution, use yellow dextrin. Yellow dextrin (the "burnt" one) is obtained by heating dry starch powder till the color changes to yellowish-brown. You can pretty much do the same by putting some potato starch on a sheet of paper lying in a baking tray at $\pu{120 .. 180 ^\circ C}$ in oven for a couple of hours.
