What is Organic Isomaltitol?
Organic Isomaltitol is a natural sweetener that is derived from organic corn. It has a similar taste and texture to sugar, but with 50% less calories and no tooth decay. It is suitable for diabetics and people who want to reduce their sugar intake.
How is Organic Isomaltitol made?
Organic Isomaltitol is made by hydrogenating organic maltose, which is extracted from organic corn. The hydrogenation process converts the maltose into two disaccharide alcohols: 1,6-GPS and 1,1-GPM. These are the main components of Organic Isomaltitol.
What are the benefits of Organic Isomaltitol?
Organic Isomaltitol has several benefits, such as:
- It does not cause a spike in blood glucose or insulin levels, as it has a low glycemic index.
- It does not promote tooth decay, as it is not metabolized by oral bacteria.
- It is stable under high temperature and low humidity conditions, and does not absorb moisture or become sticky.
- It can be used in various applications such as candy, chewing gum, chocolate, baked goods, and ice cream.
