Application Reference

No Fermentation : Xylitol is anti-cariogenic because xylitol can’t be utilized by buccal cariogenic bacteria and thus prevents the growth of bacteria and acid.
Solubility : Xylito is soluble in water. When eaten it gives a pleasant cool and fresh sensation owing to its character of high endothermic in solution.
Sweetness : The sweetness of xylitol equals that of sucrose at normal temperature; it is 1.2 times of sucrose at lower temperatures. With maltose it equals the sweetness of sucrose when xylitol exceeds half of the amount.(Test based on 10% sucrose solution as reference).
Stable Blood Glucose Level : The metabolism of xylitol in human body does not involve insulin and will not cause blood glucose levels to rise.
Chemical Stability : Xylitol has a nature of high heat-resistance; it is passive to acid and alkali ; it will not react on amino phenol and protein.
