Erythritol is a sugar alcohol, which is mostly used as a substitute for sugar. Its sources are fruits, for example, grapes, pears, or watermelons. However, it may also be found in fermented wine or cheese.
Erythritol may also be man-made and has been used that way for several dozen years. It serves in the food industry and brings a sweet taste to a product, while simultaneously reducing calorie intake. It has 0 carries per gram, compared to 4 per gram in sugar.
Erythritol E-50 is a mixture of Propylene Glycol and erythritol and should be stored:
- away from heat sources
- at 10-25oC
- away from children
Sometimes concentrated flavouring alone is not enough to get the desired taste. That is why Chemnovatic offers a series of most common additives which are made of top-quality ingredients and help to improve your recipes.
