Erythritol is a filling sweetener, a four carbon sugar alcohol with a molecular formula of C4H10O4. Erythritol is widely present in nature, such as fungal mushrooms, lichens, melons, grapes, pears, and can also be detected in small amounts in animal eyeballs, plasma, fetal fluid, semen, and urine. It is also present in small amounts in fermented foods such as wine, beer, soy sauce, and Japanese sake. It can be fermented from glucose and is a white crystalline powder with a refreshing sweetness that is not easily absorbed. It is stable at high temperatures and over a wide pH range. When dissolved in the mouth, it has a mild cooling sensation and is suitable for various foods.

1. Low sweetness: The sweetness of erythritol is only 60% -70% of that of sucrose. It has a refreshing taste upon entry, a pure taste, and no aftertaste. It can be used in combination with high magnification sweeteners to suppress the adverse flavor of its high magnification sweeteners.
2. High stability: Very stable to acid and heat, with high acid and alkali resistance. It will not decompose or change below 200 ℃, and will not undergo Maillard reaction and discoloration.
3. High heat of dissolution: Erythritol has an endothermic effect when dissolved in water, with a heat of dissolution of only 97.4 kJ/kg, which is higher in heat absorption than glucose and sorbitol, and has a refreshing feeling when consumed.
4. Solubility: The solubility of erythritol at 25 ℃ is 37% (W/W). As the temperature increases, the solubility of erythritol increases and it is not easy to crystallize and precipitate crystals.
5. Low hygroscopicity: Erythritol is very easy to crystallize, but it does not absorb moisture in a 90% humidity environment. It is easy to crush and obtain powdered products, which can be used on the surface of food to prevent moisture absorption and spoilage.
Application field

一、The food industry
Erylalcohol can be used as a diluent of low -calorie sweetener or high sweet sweetener, which is used in foods such as chocolate, baking products, soft beverages, candy, solid drinks. Big mossol is also widely used in other foods, such as dairy products, ice cream, cakes, dining table sweeteners, etc.

1. Drinking category in recent years has been used in the development of new zero -calorie and low -calorie beverages. Ahmutterol can increase the sweetness, thickness and lubrication of the drink, while reducing bitterness, can also cover other odors and improve the flavor of beverage. Big mossol can also be used for refreshing solid beverages, because moss alcohols can absorb a lot of heat when dissolved.
2. Baked food sucrose and fat are the main raw materials for making baked foods. It has a very important role in forming a unique tissue structure, taste and flavor unique to baking food. It is an indispensable raw material for the production of high -quality baked products.
3. Cake biscuits baked products are difficult to prove that its products can reduce calories because they contain high -component flour, cream, and sucrose. However, the application of red moss can easily solve this problem.
4. Candy category is refreshing and cold than other "non -sucrose" candy than other "non -sucrose" candy. Its sweetness is pure and has no bad taste.
二、 The pharmaceutical industry
The characteristics of anti -caries, antioxidant, moisturizing, and non -flammable in the field of medicine and dailyization are continuously expanded.

Compared to xylitol, erythritol has the following advantages:
1. Erythritol is a natural zero calorie sweetener, while xylitol has calories.
Erythritol has a higher tolerance than xylitol. Eating too much erythritol can lead to diarrhea, and there is a tolerance issue, with erythritol having the highest tolerance in the human body.
3. The average blood glucose index and average insulin index of erythritol are lower than xylitol, therefore, erythritol has a smaller impact on blood glucose and also has antioxidant activity.
4. Many sugar alcohols will feel refreshing when eaten, which comes from dissolving and absorbing heat. When dissolved, it will absorb your heat, so we feel cool. The degree of coolness of each product is expressed by the coefficient of heat absorption through dissolution. Erythritol has the highest heat absorption through dissolution, and its coolness is the highest.
5. In terms of production process, erythritol is the only sugar alcohol produced by fermentation, which is closer to natural transformation and extraction. Other sugar alcohols are produced by hydrogenation, so the production process is different.
6. Erythritol is generally not hygroscopic, while other sugar alcohols have varying degrees of hygroscopicity, which expands their application areas.
7. Xylitol is mainly used in the candy and pharmaceutical fields in Europe. Although xylitol is required to be added in moderation by FDA and European regulations, excessive human intake can cause symptoms such as elevated blood sugar and diarrhea.
