Project at a Glance
  • Isomalt is a natural sugar substitute, a type of sugar alcohol, which is primarily used for its sugar-like physical properties.
  • Isomalt is a disaccharide composed of the two sugars glucose and mannitol. It is an odorless, white, crystalline substance containing about 5% water of crystallisation.
  • Isomalt is a white, crystalline carbohydrate with low hygroscopicity that contains only half the calories of sugar, is odorless, and has a low glycemic effect.
  • The two-step process begins with sucrose. First, an enzyme rearranges the linkage between glucose and fructose in sucrose. In the second step, two hydrogens are added to an oxygen in the fructose portion of the disaccharide.
  • A wide range of sugar-free products formulated with isomalt is available, including hard and soft caramels, hard candies and cough drops, chewing gums, chocolates, fondants, marzipans, baked goods, preserves, ice creams, pressed mints and dragees, pharmaceutical products, and many others.
  • Isomalt provides a variety of benefits, including fewer calories and lower glycemic response than sucrose, low solubility, no Maillard reaction, very low hygroscopicity, and smooth, sweet profile similar to that of sucrose.
  • Isomalt (Palatinit, Cargill) is the only sugar substitute made from beet sugar, providing a natural taste without a cooling effect.
  • Isomalt replaces sugar 1:1, but contains only half the calories of sugar. It is tooth friendly and has a low glycemic index.
  • Recent figures from market analyst indicate that just over 34 per cent of UK consumers are now actively avoiding sugar, while in France and Germany, the figures are 40 per cent and 37 per cent respectively.
  • In recent years sugar-free confectionery has moved into the mainstream confectionery aisle,helped by an increasing number of people with diabetes and by concern overobesity and health; sugar-free hard sweets are one of the leading productsin the confectionery industry.
  • The market for sugarfree confectionery is growing, and there are two main reasons for this growth:Today’s consumers want products that are beneficial to health and offer maximum enjoyment. By choosing products with a unique sugar substitute like Palatinit’s Isomalt, consumers can fulfil their high expectations for excellent taste and improved health.
