It's said to also produce a drier taste on the palate when used in certain scenarios & percentages, as opposed to something like lactose that adds sweetness along with body.

Thanks for the reply beerlust, I have a bit of difficulty trying to visualize a drier taste, Maybe because I have just had a couple of stouts, I will have a think about this over night. cheers
