What is Sorbitol Powder?

Sorbitol Powder is additionally known as Sorbitol, D-Sorbitol, Herbal Tea Alcohol, Glucitol, Aryanol. Those precipitated from water are white needle-like crystals (containing 0.5 molecules of crystal water) or crystalline powder. Odorless. It has a great sweet taste, and also the sweetness is about 60% of that of sucrose. The power value is 12.54 kJ/g. All-natural items are commonly found in algae, apples, pears, grapes as well as other fruits and also Qiduzao fruits. Although there are d and also l-type optically energetic bodies, both synthetic and natural products are really d-type. The relative molecular mass is 182.18. Relative thickness 1.489. Melting point 110 ~ 112 ℃(anhydrous), 89 ~ 93 ℃(0.5 WATER), 75 ℃(1H2O). The boiling point is 295 ° C (0.467 × 103Pa). Refractive index 1.3330. Certain optical rotation -2.01 ° (c=0.09, WATER). Soluble in water and warm ethanol, likewise soluble in pyridine, acetic acid, isopropanol, methanol, butanol, cyclohexanol, acetone, phenol and dimethylformamide, insoluble in various other natural solvents.

Sorbitol Powder has terrific hygroscopicity, it is difficult to speed up crystals in liquid service, as well as it can chelate various metal ions. Considering that there is no decreasing group in the molecule, it is chemically steady under normal situations, does not communicate with acids and also bases, is not easily oxidized by air, as well as is not easy to undertake Maillard reaction with soluble amino substances. Sorbitol Powder has good thermal security and also solid resistance to microorganisms. It is challenging to be worn down by microorganisms with a concentration of more than 60%.

This product is a common hexavalent alcohol, which comes from sugar. Each carbon atom has a hydroxyl group, which can participate in esterification, etherification, oxidation and also reduction reactions, as well as can also develop coordination substances with several metals. Hereafter item enters the body, it is easily taken in and also ultimately metabolized right into carbon dioxide and also water. Oral LD5017500mg/kg for male rats.

Sorbitol Powder Uses

1. Daily chemical market
Sorbitol Powder can be used as excipient, hydrating agent, antifreeze agent in tooth paste, and the improvement quantity can reach 25-30%, which can maintain the paste smooth, with superb shade in addition to preference; as an anti-drying representative (rather than glycerin) in cosmetics, it can boost The extensibility and additionally lubricity of emulsifiers are suitable for long-lasting storage space; sorbitan fat esters and likewise their ethylene oxide adducts have the advantages of much less skin inflammation as well as are thoroughly utilized in the cosmetic market

2. Food field
Adding Sorbitol Powder to food can protect against the food from drying and additionally maintain the food fresh and also soft. Utilized in bread as well as cakes, it has noticeable outcome.
Sorbitol Powder is much less enjoyable than sucrose, and is not utilized by some bacteria. It is an essential resources for the production of sugar-free sweet as well as different anti-caries food. Considering that the metabolic procedure of this item does not activate blood sugar level degree to boost, it can additionally be utilized as a sweetener in addition to nutrient for diabetic food.
Sorbitol does not have aldehyde groups, is not rapidly oxidized, and also does not produce Maillard reactions with amino acids when heated. It has particular physical job and also can stop the denaturation of carotenoids as well as likewise edible fats as well as likewise healthy and balanced proteins. Including this product to focused milk can expand the life span and enhance the shade and also scent of the small intestine. It has obvious protection as well as also lasting conservation result on fish sauce. The similar goes for jam maintains.

3. Drug sector
Sorbitol Powder can be utilized as a basic material for vitamin C production; it can in addition be made use of as a resources for syrup, shot mix, pharmaceutical tableting, medication spreading agent, filler, cryoprotectant, anti-crystallization representative, Chinese medicine stabilizer, wetting agent, pill plasticizer agents, sugar, cream bases, etc 4. Chemical market.
Sorbitol Powder Rosin is a regular resources for building layers and additionally can be made use of as a plasticizer, lube in PVC products and also various other polymers.
It is complexed with iron, copper as well as light weight light weight aluminum ions in alkaline service, as well as also is made use of in lightening as well as also washing in the fabric sector. Sorbitol Powder as well as propylene oxide are used as beginning products to generate tight polyurethane foam with particular fire resistant residences.

Sorbitol Powder Function and Effect

Sorbitol Powder is oxidized to fructose by sorbitol dehydrogenase in mammals and humans, and then enters the fructose-1-phosphate pathway for metabolism, and its metabolism has nothing to do with insulin in the body. At the same time, sorbitol is not a suitable substrate for oral microorganisms to prevent dental caries and has a diuretic effect.

(1) Does not cause fluctuations in blood sugar levels: Sorbitol Powder can be used as a sweetener for diabetics. After the human body takes a large amount of sorbitol, the blood sugar level rises very little, and it will not cause an increase in the demand for insulin. It is suitable for diabetics. . In the 1950s, Adcock and Gray confirmed the above point by comparing the changes in blood sugar after ingestion of 14C-labeled sorbitol and glucose in humans.

(2) Does not cause dental caries: Like xylitol, polyols such as Sorbitol Powder and mannitol have much lower cariogenic properties than sucrose. This difference between sucrose and sugar alcohols is due to the effects of their respective degradation products on the physical properties and chemical composition of dental plaque and saliva, as well as their tolerance for microbial metabolism, that is, due to the effects of oral microorganisms on them. caused by different circumstances. Analysis and comparison of the generation of acid substances on the tooth surface after oral intake of sucrose, sorbitol, mannitol and xylitol found that after ingestion of sucrose, acid was rapidly produced and pH decreased, but xylitol, Sorbitol Powder and mannitol intake The pH drop caused by the acid generated after injection is less, and the pH is still greater than the critical value of 5.5 at this time, because it will not cause dental caries.

(3) Other physiological effects: Sorbitol Powder has the properties of diuresis and dehydration, can reduce intracranial pressure and prevent edema. 5.48% sorbitol aqueous solution is an isotonic solution. After oral administration to the duodenum, it stimulates the cells in the mucosa to release cholecystokinin, which can promote the strong contraction of the gallbladder and the relaxation of the sphincter of Oddi, which is good for the gallbladder, and stimulates the pancreas to secrete pancreatic lipase, etc. It can promote the release of insulin, increase the secretion of hepatic bile, accelerate the peristalsis and absorption of the small intestine, and dredge the remaining gas in the intestinal cavity, thus improving the symptoms of patients with chronic intestinal and gastrointestinal diseases.

Sorbitol Powder Preparation Method

① Extracted from natural plant Qiduzao fruit or extracted from algae. Qiduzao fruit contains about 35% to 40%, and red algae contains about 13.6%.
② Using D-glucose as raw material, under the catalysis of Ruanlai nickel, hydrogenation reduction at 50~150℃ and 5~18MPa can be used to obtain sorbitol. The glucose concentration is 50%, and the pH of the solution is 8.2 to 8.4. After the reaction is completed, it is decolorized with activated carbon and purified with ion exchange resin.
③ It can also be prepared by using starch, dextrin, maltose and other polysaccharides as raw materials, decomposed, reduced, and obtained.
④ Conversion and reduction of sucrose.
