Sugar Alcohol Series

LEARN MORE

Sugar alcohols are monosaccharides that undergo catalytic hydrogenation and sodium borohydride reduction to the corresponding polyols. Although sugar alcohols are sugar-free sugar alcohols with certain sugar properties: It is 90% as sweet as sugar with almost half the calories. At present, Saigao Nutri has developed different types of sugar alcohol products: such as erythritol, maltitol crystals, lactitol, bio 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 types of sugar alcohols to choose the proper one for your application.


Different Types of Sugar Alcohols

What Does Sugar Alcohol Do?

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-calorie sugar alternatives or fillers of high sweeteners. 

What Does Sugar Alcohol Do?
For Pre-adjustment for Diabetes

Different types of sugar alcohols are generally not restricted by insulin and will not cause an increase in blood sugar value, so they are often used as sweeteners for diabetes and obesity patients.

What Does Sugar Alcohol Do?
Control Crystallization, Viscosity And The Structure Of Food

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.

What Does Sugar Alcohol Do?
Combine With Water

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.

What Does Sugar Alcohol Do?
Non-toxic and Harmless

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.

What Does Sugar Alcohol Do?
Non Browning Reaction When Heated

Sugar alcohol series did not participate in the browning reaction when heated. This healthy low-calorie sweetener can be classified into functional food additives. 

What Are The Side Effects Of Sugar Alcohol?

What Are The Side Effects Of Sugar Alcohol?

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 the sugar alcohols like maltitol liquid have a low glycemic index and belong to low-density carbohydrates, they will still have problems if they are consumed in large quantities.

What Is The Difference Between Sugar And Sugar Alcohol?

What Is The Difference Between Sugar And Sugar Alcohol?

Sugar
Sugar

Sugar is the name of sweet-tasting carbohydrates, which comprises carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms. Different from sugar alcohols, sugars are easily digested in the small intestine and transported to the bloodstream to be further metabolized or used for energy. They will be absorbed into our bloodstream and thus causing a rise in blood sugar levels. Typically, sugars will be fermented by bacteria in your mouth, which can produce acids that damage your tooth enamel and increase your risk of dental caries (1Trusted Source).

Sugar Alcohols

Sugar alcohols are sweet-tasting, which also called polyols. They have a totally different chemical structure than the normal sugar and they do not contain ethanol, which is safe for people. Generally, the calories of different types of sugar alcohols are less than the common sugars. Commonly, compared with the 4 calories per gram owned by sugars, sugar alcohols exist around 2 calories per gram. Sugar alcohols are not available to be efficiently absorbed, they have fewer effects on your blood sugar levels. In addition, unlike sugar, sugar alcohols do not contribute to tooth decay, as the bacteria in your mouth are unable to ferment them

FAQs of Sugar Alcohol Series

  • 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.

• Long-term consumption does not cause tooth decay.

• Some sugar alcohols have a laxative effect, the degree of difference is as follows:

Erythritol- Maltitol+ Xylitol++ Sorbitol+++ Mannitol+++

• It has the ability to absorb heat by dissolving water, and the entrance has a cool feeling.

•Compared with other sweeteners: The commonality of different types of sugar alcohols is low sweetness, low calorific value, good moisture absorption, heat and acid resistance, no Maillard reaction, suitable for baking.
