Erythritol is the first polyol to be manufactured on a commercial scale by a fermentation process. The starting material is a simple sugar-rich substrate which is fermented by a yeast like fungus to yield erythritol.
The product is then crystallized to 99.5 percent purity from the filtered and concentrated fermentation broth.
