The sweetest equal to sucrose.
Four key character:
No fermentation: Xylitol is an·ti·cariogenic because xylitol can’t be ulilized by buccal cariogenic bacteria to produce organic acids, thus prevent dental caries.
Soluble easily: Asorb more quantity of heat in process of solution, so give a pleasant cool and fresh sensation
Chemical stability: Xylitol has a nature of high heat-resistance, it is passive to acid and alkali, and it will not react on amino acid and protein.
Stabilize blood glucose level: The metabolism of xylitol in human body does not invovle insulin and will not cause blood glucose levels to rise.
Food: Xylitol can be used as low calorie functional sweeteners in chewing gum, candy, beverage, dairy and bake food.
