Erythritol as a white crystalline, slightly sweet, the relative sweetness 0.65. A cool feeling. Low heat, heat about one-tenth of sucrose. Is a low-calorie, high-sweetness sweetener. Erythritol need to sucrose taste for foods such as chocolate and table sugar, so appropriate for diabetics.

Erythritol can be used with low melting point, moisture absorption features have been assumed food. For example, the pancakes in a 125 ° dipping solution of E968 seconds, cool to room temperature. 80% in relative humidity, temperature 30 ℃ placed for five days, was to fulfill the pancake feed only 0.5% water absorption. Erythritol has been assumed with cakes, depending on the needs of both moisture but also moisturizing to Yen life.
As the endothermic dissolution Erythritol can be used to support the cooling of playing powder drinks. Alcoholic beverages to add 0.5-1% of Erythritol, can greatly shorten the fermentation period. Add in the energy drink less Erythritol can significantly improve the sweetness quality.
3. ice cream
Manufacture of ice cream must be combined with Erythritol using the same amount of other sugars. Erythritol amount is too large, ice cream hardness is too high, but you can use Erythritol-E968 this feature to create new cold.
Refined in the standard conditions, a variety of E968 chocolate syrup sauce viscosity and generally similar. But Erythritol good thermal stability, low moisture absorption, Erythritol can shorten processing time, can also improve the flavor.
Chewing gum is sugar crystallization and the use of seat made of plastic mixing. Erythritol easy to micro-grinding, low moisture absorption characteristics was Erythritol as gum sweetener.
6. Table sweeteners
Erythritol is a low hygroscopic crystalline powder, suitable for use with saccharin, aspartame and other high-intensity sweetener mixture of table sweetener production, as Erythritol features a good sweet taste, to sample the bitter saccharin bad taste, so use Erythritol can produce a crystalline, granular, powder, flakes of non-corrosive low-calorie tabletop sweeteners.
Erythritol is a natural sugar . It occurs naturally in fruits and fermented foods. At industrial level, Erythritol is produced from glucose by fermentation with a yeast, Moniliella pollinis.
Erythritol is present in fruits such as pears, melons and grapes, Erythritol as well as foods such as mushrooms and fermentation-derived foods such as wine, soy sauce and cheese. Since 1990, Erythritol has been commercially produced and added to foods and beverages to provide sweetness, Erythritol as well as enhance their taste and texture.
