Erythritol is a newly developed 4-carbon sugar alcohol, which can be obtained by fermentation of glucose. It is a white crystalline powder with a refreshing sweet taste, not easy to absorb moisture, stable at high temperature, and stable in a wide range of pH. When dissolved in the mouth, it has a mild cooling sensation and is suitable for a variety of foods.



(1) Low calorie: Erythritol has low calorie value of 1.65 kJ/g, sucrose is 16.7 kJ/g, xylitol is 11.7 kJ/g, and erythritol is the lowest energy functional sugar. .

(2) High tolerance: The body’s tolerance to erythritol is 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight, which is higher than xylitol, lactitol and maltitol.

(3) Anti-caries: erythritol is not used by human oral bacteria, so it does not cause acid damage to the teeth, which causes the teeth to metamorphose and inhibit the growth of oral bacteria, thus protecting the teeth.



(1) Sweetener; Moisturizer; Flavor Enhancer; Tissue Improver; Molding Aid.

(2) Can be used for drinks, candy, cakes. Low calorie sweetener; thinner for high intensity sweeteners.

(3) Can be used for chocolate, baked goods, table sugar, soft drinks, fructose, solid drinks, etc.

(4) Especially suitable for the production of moistureproof food. Due to its low solubility (compared to sucrose), it is easy to crystallize and is suitable for foods that require a sugary taste, such as chocolate and table sugar.
