Synonyms:D-Glucitol; Sorbitol BP
Product Typical Properties
|White crystalline powder
It has a cool and sweet taste, with a sweetness of 65% of sucrose and a low calorific value. It has good hygroscopicity and is widely used in industries such as food, daily chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. Its application in food can prevent food drying, aging, extend product shelf life, and effectively prevent the crystallization of sugars and salts in food. It can maintain the strength balance of sweet, sour, and bitter flavors and increase food flavor. It can be obtained by heating and pressure hydrogenation of glucose in the presence of a nickel catalyst.
- The daily chemical industry sorbitol is used as an excipient, humectant, and antifreeze in toothpaste, with a dosage of up to 25-30%. It can maintain the smoothness of the paste, with good color and taste; As an anti drying agent (instead of glycerol) in cosmetics, it can enhance the stretchability and lubricity of emulsifiers and is suitable for long-term storage; Sorbitan fatty acid esters and their ethylene oxide adducts have the advantage of low skin irritation and are widely used in the cosmetics industry. 2. Adding sorbitol to food in the food industry can prevent food from cracking and keep it fresh and soft. Used in bread and cake, it has a significant effect. Sorbitol has a lower sweetness than sucrose and is not utilized by certain bacteria. It is an important raw material for producing sugar free candies and various caries prevention foods.
