C☆Sweet® L low-DE glucose syrups

C☆Sweet® L low DE glucose syrups

Meeting the requirements for high-quality spray drying of coffee creamers

Glucose syrups with lower DE (dextrose equivalent) values are used in the spray drying of coffee creamers due to their functional benefits.

The characteristics needed for usage of syrups in coffee creamers is very specific and determined by the percentage of declarable sugars, the hygroscopicity, the glass transition temperature and viscosity. These impact the quality of spray drying and careful optimization of the composition can ensure best performance.

Our new C✩Sweet® L range of low DE glucose syrups – derived from wheat - is specifically designed for use in spray drying of coffee creamers. In Europe, they are labeled as glucose syrups.

Product offer

We offer a range of very low DE glucose syrups to help meet the requirements for high quality spray drying of coffee creamers with limited increase in viscosity.

Especially manufacturers using classic single or multi-stage dryers which are more sensible to stickiness will benefit from our new range.
