Introduction

The sweetness of xylitol is comparable to that of sucrose, and it can absorb a lot of heat when dissolved in water. It has the largest endothermic value among all sugar alcohol sweeteners. Therefore, when eaten in solid form, it will produce a pleasant cooling sensation in the mouth. Xylitol does not cause caries and has the effect of preventing caries. Metabolism is not regulated by insulin, and is completely metabolized in the human body, with a calorific value of 10kJ/g.

Functions and Applications

1. Xylitol,as the best substitute of sweetener for the diabetic,can be widely used in the juice drinking,coffee,milk,bread,candy and other sugarless food.    
2. It is the bad basis for the microorganism and can’t be fermented by the yeast.The food making with xylitol can be kept more long time without any preservative.    
3. Xylitol can promote the action of the salutary germs and improve the immunity of body.Xylitol can absorb more quantity of head than other polyols,so the food making with xylitol has a cool taste and keep the original food flavor.
