Isomalt is a type of sugar alcohol extracted from sugar and is only 2 calories per gram. It is odourless and very soluble. The solubility of Isomalt is 24g in 100g of solution which increases at higher temperatures. A great advantage of Isomalt is it absorbs no moisture at a temperature of 25°C and relative humidity of 85%. Hygroscopicity is lower than other sugar alcohols and sugar itself which makes Isomalt products very stable when stored. It has a high heat resistance and will not melt until it reaches 145°C and its chemical structure is not altered at normal cooking temperatures. Products made with Isomalt develop their full flavour enabling the user to make high boiled products with delicate flavours and aromas. Unlike other sugar alcohols Isomalt has no undesired cooling effect and can be used with any flavour. It is less sweet than sugar, with sweetening power of approx. 60%, with no compromise to the natural flavour of sugar. Suitable for Vegan's & Vegetarian's, Non GMO, Gluten Free, Diabetic friendly.
