Product Description



Erythritol powder, E968, Cas no.149-32-6, low calorie sweetener, a white slightly sweet crystalline powder manufacturing process from fermentation from sugar in corn. As a bulk sweetener, erythritol provides volume, texture and microbiological stability similar to sucrose. Erythritol is 60% – 70% as sweet as sucrose, soluble in water and slightly soluble in alcohol. It is used to sweeten a variety of foods and beverages, including frozen dairy desserts, yogurt, chewing gum, sauces, and hard candies. Unlike artificial sweeteners, Erythritol appears naturally in fruits such as pears, melons and grapes, as well as foods such as mushrooms and fermentation-derived foods such as wine, soy sauce and cheese. It is widely used in food manufacturing such as baking and roasting foods, cakes, dairy produce, chocolate, all kinds of candies, dessert, gum, soft drink,and ice-cream. As a professional Erythritol supplier, we distribute Erythritol powder FCC/USP/BP/EP feed, food and pharma grade.
