Sorbitol CAS 50-70-4

Description of Sorbitol

Sorbitol, also known as glucitol, is a sugar alcohol with a sweet taste which the human body metabolizes slowly. It can be obtained by reduction of glucose, changing the aldehyde group to a hydroxyl group. Most sorbitol is made from corn syrup, but it is also found in apples, pears, peaches, and prunes. It is converted to fructose by sorbitol-6-phosphate 2-dehydrogenase. 

Sorbitol is an isomer of mannitol, another sugar alcohol; the two differ only in the orientation of the hydroxyl group on carbon 2. While similar, the two sugar alcohols have very different sources in nature, melting points, and uses.

What is Sorbitol?

With the progress of science and technology and the development of society, chemical products have invariably permeated our daily lives, in medicine, food, cosmetics, electronics, industry, and other areas, becoming an essential part of our lives. One such product is Sorbitol which has developed particularly rapidly in recent years. Do you know about Sorbitol?

The official answer: Sorbitol, also known as sorbitol, D-Glucitol, Sorbol, D-Sorbitol, is the main photosynthesis product of the Rosaceae plant. It is a white hygroscopic powder or crystalline powder, flakes or granules, odourless. The melting point varies from 88 to 102°C depending on the crystallization conditions, and the relative density is about 1.49. It is soluble in water (1 g in about 0.45 mL of water) and slightly soluble in ethanol and acetic acid. It has a cool sweet taste, the sweetness is about half that of sucrose, the calorific value is similar to that of sucrose, and its use as a sweetener does not cause dental caries.

What’s the application of Sorbitol?

Sorbitol (liquid) can be used for ice-cream, popsicles, pastries, beverages, biscuits, bread, sauces and sweets according to production needs. In practice, sorbitol can be used as a nutritive sweetener, wetting agent, chelating agent and stabiliser. Foods using sorbitol can be consumed by patients with diabetes, liver disease and cholecystitis. In addition to being used as a sweetener, sorbitol has the effect of moisturising, chelating metal ions and improving the organisation (making cakes delicate and preventing starch ageing).
