Growing Demand for Artificial Sweeteners

Sorbitol is majorly used as a sweetener or moisture-stabilizing agent in the production of confectionery, baked goods and chocolate, among many other products. The moisture-stabilizing action of this substance makes it a preferable choice for products that get dry or harden faster, thus, maintaining freshness during storage. Sorbitol can withstand high temperatures and can combine well with other food ingredients such as gelling agents, fats and sugars.

Sorbitol is used to impart taste and sweetness. Increased applications of sorbitol in the food industry has augmented the market of non-calorie sweetener. Increasing health awareness, and rising sugar prices are pushing the manufacturers to reduce the sugar usage. Demand for sorbitolfrom major countries in the region like Japan, China, and South Korea is also fueling the overall market.

Sorbitol is certified as GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the FDA. However, the certification do limit the amount of sorbitol that can be used in food; further, food containing an excess of 50 grams of it must be labeled with: “Excess consumption may have a laxative effect.”
