Zerose® Erythritol Sweetener
Zerose® erythritol is a natural*, zero-calorie bulk sweetener that looks and tastes like sugar, making it ideal for food and beverage applications promoting sugar reduction and weight management. Erythritol has the highest digestive tolerance compared to other polyols and masks the aftertaste of intense sweeteners. It is also non-cariogenic and has been clinically shown to offer Better Tooth Protection™ than other polyols.
Zerose® erythritol is now Non-GMO* Project Verified
*Zerose® erythritol has always been, and will continue to be an ingredient produced by fermentation. In order to enable Non-GMO Project Verification, carbohydrate feedstocks from conventionally-bred non-GMO crops were selected. Both Non-GMO Project Verified and Standard erythritol are still available for customers.
For a Healthier Lifestyle
Consumers embrace wellness mindset
With the growing demands to reduce overall sugar consumption, the food industry is seeking ways to respond to consumer demand for foods that help meet their dietary and weight loss goals. This means developing foods that are sugar-free, lower calorie and low in glycemic carbohydrates while also achieving the desired texture, flavor and stability of traditional products.
Zerose® Erythritol Technical Details
Erythritol is the first polyol to be industrially manufactured by a fermentation process. The starting material is a simple sugar-rich substrate that is fermented using conventional yeast to yield erythritol. The product is then crystalized to 99.5% purity from the filtered and concentrated fermentation broth.
Zerose® erythritol is a low molecular weight polyol, comprised of four carbon atoms. It appears as a white crystalline, odorless product that rapidly dissolves in water (up to 60 g/100 ml at 30°C) to produce a brilliantly clear, low viscosity, colorless solution.
