Application of Erythritol in the Food Industry
Erythritol is a newly developed 4-carbon sugar alcohol that can be produced by fermentation of glucose. It is a white crystalline powder with a refreshing sweetness, not easy to absorb moisture, stable at high temperature, stable in a wide pH range, and when dissolved in the mouth It has a mild cooling sensation and is suitable for a variety of foods.
Main Nature
①Low sweetness
The sweetness of erythritol is only 60%-70% of that of sucrose. It has a refreshing taste, pure taste, and no bitterness. It can be used in combination with high-power sweeteners to suppress the bad flavor of high-power sweeteners.
②High stability
It is very stable to acid and heat and has high acid and alkali resistance. It will not decompose and change below 200 degrees, and will not change color due to the Maillard reaction.
③The high heat of dissolution
Erythritol has an endothermic effect when it is dissolved in water. The heat of dissolution is only 97.4KJ/KG, which is higher than glucose and sorbitol. It has a cooling sensation when consumed.
The solubility of erythritol at 25°C is 37% (W/W). As the temperature rises, the solubility of erythritol increases, making it easy to crystallize and precipitate crystals.
⑤Low hygroscopicity
Erythritol is very easy to crystallize, but it will not absorb moisture in a 90% humidity environment, and it is easy to crush to obtain a powdered product, which can be used on the surface of the food to prevent food from deteriorating due to moisture absorption.
