Application of Powdered Erythritol in Food

Erythritol has good physical and chemical properties and biological activity, and has wide applications and good prospects in food processing industry, pharmaceutical industry, daily chemical industry and many other fields.
Erythritol has been widely used in the food industry in recent years due to its low melting point, low calorie, low hygroscopicity, good sweetness coordination, more heat absorption during dissolution, and high stability to acid and heat.
This unique metabolic feature makes erythritol safe for special consumer groups with limited sugar, such as diabetic patients. Therefore, erythritol is widely used in functional foods and beverages for special populations such as diabetes, glucose intolerance, and obesity.
Erythritol has good crystallization properties. Wang Hairong et al. prepared an erythritol-honey solid-state compound product by a melt co-crystallization method, which retained the natural ingredients of honey and solved the problems in honey processing, transportation and storage. . In addition, the erythritol-honey co-crystal also has the advantages of good instant solubility, uniform taste, and convenient consumption, which is more convenient for the application of honey.
In the food processing industry, it is often necessary to add some natural sugar alcohol compounds, which can not only improve some functional properties of dehydrated foods and proteins, but also stabilize and protect biological macromolecules in solution, inhibit the formation of macromolecular aggregates, and inhibit air -Protein denaturation at the water interface and improving the stability of protein emulsions under different environmental factors. Erythritol, as a promising natural sweetener, has attracted more and more attention in the food industry. Zhou Xiangjun et al. found that moderate addition of erythritol in the separation and extraction of pea protein can not only effectively improve the structure of pea protein isolate, but also improve its functional properties such as foaming, water-holding, emulsifying and surface hydrophobicity. , which provides a theoretical basis for the large-scale and in-depth application of pea protein extraction in the food industry.
Therefore, at present, erythritol has been added to the formulation of some collagen products to improve the taste.
1. Sweets
Erythritol is a zero-calorie sweetener. In the formulation of sweets, erythritol can replace sucrose to significantly reduce its calorie, improve the flavor and shape of the product, increase the stability of the product, and prevent the food from being in the production process. Browning and decomposition occurs. Ice cream products contain a lot of sugar, which is not conducive to the consumption of diabetics, obese patients and patients with high blood lipids and hypertension. Adding erythritol and other sweeteners in the formula of ice cream is beneficial to reduce the calorie of ice cream, bring a cool and refreshing taste, and can significantly mask the bitterness and sweetness of a variety of sweeteners. The taste is pure. In chocolate food, in addition to reducing the heat brought by chocolate, erythritol’s low moisture absorption solves the problem of chocolate blooming due to moisture absorption during the production process, and at the same time shortens the processing time to a large extent.
2. Bakery products
With the rise of the concept of “green baking”, erythritol is used to replace part of sucrose in baked products to maintain a good taste, while also preventing moisture and extending the shelf life of food. Kraft has added erythritol to its Oreo line, which reduces the calorie content of cookies and adds a unique refreshing taste.
In baked goods, the low hygroscopicity of erythritol can prevent the food from absorbing moisture and prolong the shelf life of the food. At the same time, erythritol can reduce its calories in baked goods, harmonize the taste, replace part of sucrose, and reduce sugar content, which not only conforms to the contemporary concept of healthy life, but also makes baked goods have good porosity and softness. In order to develop new low-sugar healthy bakery products, Zhang Wei et al. The results showed that under the optimal parameters, the cookies obtained were complete in shape, golden in color and taste. Crispy and well-organized.
3. Dairy products
Han Jianjiao and others optimized the process conditions of erythritol-fermented red soybean milk through single factor and orthogonal experiments, and found that under the optimal process conditions, the free amino nitrogen content of fermented red soybean milk could reach 1.574 mol/L, and the sensory evaluation was good. Erythritol with lower osmotic pressure can inhibit lactic acid fermentation and prolong product shelf life and shelf life.
4. Beverage products
Now more and more low-sugar and low-calorie beverages and sweets such as candy, chewing gum, and chocolate use erythritol to meet market needs and meet consumer health requirements. It has been reported in the literature that adding erythritol to lemon juice beverages not only improves the taste of the beverages, but also protects the vitamins in the beverages and prolongs the shelf life.
Ou Zhifeng et al. used jasmine tea and black tea as raw materials, added compound natural sweeteners xylitol, erythritol and Luo Han Guo extract, determined the tea extraction process conditions through orthogonal experiments, and determined the sugar-free tea beverage through sensory evaluation. The formula, after the deployment, the tea taste is fragrant and the taste is rich. Erythritol has a pleasant cooling feeling in the entrance, which can increase the sweetness of the product, reduce the bitterness and astringency of the tea, and at the same time can mask the peculiar smell.
