Basic Info

What is Erythritol?

Erythritol is widely dispersed in nature. Algae, mushrooms, melons, grapes, peaches and also other fruits all contain erythritol. Given that germs, fungis and also yeast can also generate erythritol, it likewise exists in fermented food red wine, beer, soy sauce, and also in the body liquids of human beings as well as mammals. Erythritol is a white crystalline four-carbon polyol substance, chemical name is 1,2,3,4-butanetetraol, molecular formula is C4H10O4, molecular weight, melting point 126 ° C, boiling point 329-331 ° C, heat of service g, Its chemical buildings are similar to sugar alcohols such as sorbitol, mannitol and xylitol.

Erythritol is a new fermented low-calorie sweetener created by biotechnology. In June 1999, the International Committee of Professionals on Artificial Additive (JECFA) accepted erythritol as an edible sugar without calling for ADI value. Today, erythritol has been utilized in food manufacturing in the United States, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Mexico and also other countries. On June 19, 2007, the Ministry of Wellness of my nation introduced that erythritol was used as a sweetener in eating gum, solid drinks, ready milk and also other foods.

It was a Scottish drug store, John Stenhouse, who found erythritol. John mainly examined natural chemistry throughout his life. In addition to finding erythritol, he likewise discovered xylenol as well as made a variety of initial and useful developments in dyeing, waterproofing, sugar production, natural leather making, and so on patent. John stumbled upon erythritol while investigating the removal of dyes from numerous lichens that could be used in the fabric market. When John was researching a litmus lichen called Roccellamontagnei brought back from Angola, he unintentionally uncovered this substance. Published in the “Royal Journal of Chemistry” at the start of the year. “It’s very wonderful, hardly ever as sweet as orcinol. When you place it on the foil as well as warm it, it shines blue as well as launches a caramel-like taste … looks quite like a kind of orcinol as well as mannitol.” In February 1849, when John continued to release his previous research study results in the “Royal Journal of Chemistry”, he renamed the “pseudo-orcinol” he had actually uncovered as well as named “erythritol”. Sugar alcohol.”

Properties of erythritol

  1. Sweetness: about 60-70% of the sweetness of 10% sucrose aqueous solution. It has a refreshing feeling in the mouth. The taste is very similar to sucrose, without aftertaste. Mixed with strong sweeteners, it can cover up its bad taste. It can also be used with stevia shakes or saccharin.
  2. Heat of Solution: When consumed in its crystalline state, erythritol, like other sugar alcohols, produces a cooling sensation in the mouth as it absorbs heat as it dissolves. The heat of dissolution of erythritol is three times that of glucose.
  3. Hygroscopicity: Erythritol has good crystallinity, very low hygroscopicity, and does not absorb moisture even at a relative humidity of 90%. Therefore, it is suitable for processing chocolate, candy and food.
  4. Solubility: The solubility of erythritol is 37% at 20°C, only 50% of that of sorbitol. Therefore, when preparing high-concentration foods such as jam, it should be mixed with other sugar alcohols to prevent crystallization.
  5. Solubility: The solubility of erythritol is 37% at 20°C, only 50% of that of sorbitol. Therefore, when preparing high-concentration foods such as jam, it should be mixed with other sugar alcohols to prevent crystallization.
  6. Viscosity: 30% aqueous solution of erythritol at 25°C has a viscosity of c3p.
  7. Water activity: Erythritol molecule is small, has strong freezing point depression effect, high osmotic pressure, low hygroscopicity, low viscosity, etc., so it is easy to control and reduce water activity, which is beneficial to improve the preservation performance of food. The water activity of 36% aqueous solution of erythritol at 25°C is 0.91.
  8. Heat and acid resistance: Under various food processing conditions, it is quite stable to acid and heat, does not decompose, does not change color, and does not produce Maillard reaction.

Application of Erythritol

The above buildings and organic attributes of erythritol make it commonly made use of, specifically in the food sector as a diluent for low-calorie sweeteners and also high-sweetness sugar, extensively utilized in sweets (consisting of chocolate foods), Milk beverages, bakery items, sodas, etc, the maximum use is 3%.

How to Distinguish Erythritol from Sorbitol

  • Quality of Erythritol
    Erythritol is a freshly established 4-carbon sugar alcohol that can be fermented from sugar. It is a white crystalline powder with a revitalizing pleasant preference, not easy to soak up moisture, stable at heat, steady in a variety of PH, and dissolved in the mouth It has a light cooling effect as well as is suitable for a selection of foods.
  • Feature of Sorbitol
    Sorbitol is colorless needle-like crystal or white crystal powder, odorless, with cool and pleasant taste, conveniently soluble in water, insoluble in organic solvent, it has great acid resistance and also warmth resistance, and it is difficult to disintegrate with amino acid, protein, and so on. Rad responded. Sorbitol solution is a colorless, clear as well as viscous fluid. Sorbitol remedy is a clear, anemic syrupy fluid with a pleasant preference, neutral to litmus, and also miscible with water, glycerin as well as propylene glycol.

As a result of its low sweetness, high stability, high warmth of service, and also cooling sensation when eaten, erythritol can be utilized in baked food, as a food sugar, and in the preparation of candy.

Sorbitol is often made use of as a dietary sweetener, humectant, chelating agent as well as stabilizer in actual manufacturing. Foods that utilize sorbitol can be used by individuals with diabetes mellitus, liver illness, and also cholecystitis. In addition to being made use of as a sweetener, sorbitol additionally has the features of hydrating, chelating metal ions, and also enhancing structure (making cakes fragile and protecting against starch aging).
