Sugar alcohols are monosaccharides that undergo catalytic hydrogenation and
sodium borohydride reduction to the corresponding polyols. Although sugar
alcohols are sugar-free sugar alcohol with certain sugar properties: It is 90%
as sweet as sugar with almost half the calories. At present, SAIGAO has
developed different types of sugar alcohol products: such as erythritol,
maltitol, lactitol, xylitol, etc. These sugar alcohols have high stability to
acid and heat, and are not prone to Maillard reaction, making them a sugar free
sugar alcohol, widely used in low-calorie food formulations.

View the following list of sugar alcohols to choose the proper sugar alcohol
types for your application.

Sugar Alcohol Series Physiological Function

The structure of sugar alcohol nutritious synthetic sweeteners is characterized
by multiple hydroxyl groups. Their sweetness is less than that of sucrose, and
most of their calories are lower than that of sucrose. Therefore, they are used
as low sweetness, low calorie sweeteners or fillers of high sweeteners. At the
same time, they are generally not restricted by insulin and will not cause the
increase of blood sugar value, so they are often used as sweeteners for
diabetes and obesity patients.

Sugar alcohol series can control crystallization and even control the viscosity
and structure of food. It can also reduce water activity and so on, which have
been developed rapidly.

Sugar alcohol series structure makes them have the ability to combine with
water. So some of the effects of sugar alcohol are as follows: keeping food
humidity, improving or maintaining softness, improving the rehydration of
dehydrated food.

Sugar alcohol series extract from the phloem juice of plants, non-toxic and
harmless to plants and human body. Sugar alcohol complex technology has
played an important role in rice and soybean planting.

Sugar alcohol series did not participate in the browning reaction when heated.
Some food additives with certain health functional factors and scientific and
detailed test data can be classified into functional food additives.

Sugar Alcohol Series-FAQs

Do you know sugar alcohol?
We hear it all the time, but we never really understand it, do we? Sugar
alcohols are monosaccharides which are reduced to corresponding polyols by
catalytic hydrogenation and sodium borohydride. Although sugar alcohol is not
sugar, it has some sugar properties. At present, there are sorbitol, mannitol,
erythritol, maltitol, lactol, xylitol, etc. these sugar alcohols have high
stability to acid and heat, and are not easy to occur Maillard reaction. They
become low calorific value food sweeteners and are widely used in low calorific
value food formulations. Its taste is very sweet and not easy to be absorbed by
the body, so many food manufacturers think it is a very good sweetener, but few
people know that sugar alcohols actually cause some physical discomfort.

What is sugar alcohol?
Sugar alcohols can be classified as carbohydrates, which are found in many
fruits and vegetables, but they are more common in sugar free and low sugar
foods. The sweetness of sugar alcohols ranges from 25% to 100% of the sweetness
of sucrose. Although they are used in sugar free foods, sugar alcohols have
calories, but their glycemic index is very low, which helps to control blood
sugar. Sugar alcohol will not ferment in the mouth, so it will not cause oral
bacteria reproduction, which is conducive to oral health.

Why sugar alcohols?
All brands use sugar alcohols because they are not easily digested and absorbed
by the human body. Not all sugar alcohols enter the blood. Some of them go
directly through the small intestine and into the large intestine. Most of the
businesses that use glycols are aimed at diabetes to stabilize blood sugar
levels. Because sugar alcohols are not completely absorbed, they don't trigger
the insulin response like normal sugar. In addition, many brands also use sugar
alcohols to combat dental caries caused by sugar. Bacteria in the mouth will
not react with sugar alcohols. Xylitol even helps to inhibit oral bacteria

What side effects does sugar alcohol have?
For some people, glycols can cause flatulence and diarrhea because they are not
fully absorbed by our digestive system, leading to fermentation in the gut.
Because of the phenomenon of fermentation, there will be gas production,
resulting in gastrointestinal discomfort. This is why some chewing gum or mint
in foreign countries will be marked "excessive consumption may lead to
diarrhea". Sometimes people will have blood sugar fluctuations, although these
sugar alcohols have a low glycemic index and belong to low-density
carbohydrates, they will still have problems if they are consumed in large
