E968 — пищевая добавка, антифламинг, подсластитель: эритрит, erythritol (968)

Erythritol is a non-caloric sugar-free bulk sweetener that is a member of the polyols or sugar alcohols. It has about 60-70% of the sweetness of sucrose (sugar) with a clean sweet taste with a cooling sensation, but with no aftertaste. It occurs naturally in fruits (such as grapes and melons) and fermented foods, but commercially is prepared by the fermentation of glucose by the yeast Moniliella polinis. It is an odourless white crystalline powder that commercially is sold in granulated or powdered form. It can also be used synergistically with other sweeteners like acesulfame K, aspartame, neotame, saccharin and sucralose and other polyols. Erythritol is often used with other ingredients to improve the texture, the moisture content, to inhibit crystallisation in products, and to counteract it's cooling effects.

Common Uses
