Sorbitol, the most commonly used polyol, is derived from the monosaccharide glucose (dextrose).
It is available in powder form, as a concentrated aqueous solution and as a syrup.
Sorbitol is widely used for its humectancy power. Cargill’s comprehensive sorbitol product range includes CSorbidex™ P and S, sorbitol powders with particle size distributions varying from coarse to very fine. It also includes CSorbidex™ C, a concentrated sorbitol syrup with crystallizing properties as well as CSorbidex™ NC sorbitol syrup with a balanced composition of sorbitol and hydrogenated oligosaccharides.
