What Are the Types of Sweeteners?

Sweeteners are actually sweet food additives that do not affect our blood sugar levels. Many drinks require only a small amount of food additive to achieve a good taste.

Food additive saccharin sodium

Saccharin sodium, also known as o-benzosulfimide sodium salt, usually contains two molecules of crystalline water. It is a colorless crystal that can easily weather half of its crystalline water and become a white powder. It is 200-500 times sweeter than sucrose, and is more thermally stable in aqueous solutions than saccharin. The sweetness of the aqueous solution slowly decreases after long-term storage. In terms of sweet taste, the anions produced by the decomposition of saccharin sodium have a strong sweet taste, but the molecular state has no sweet taste and is easily bitter. The solubility and dissociation of saccharin sodium are both high, so it is sweet.

Food additive D-Mannose

Mannose is a sugar first isolated from wood, and was named after it. D Mannose wholesale is classified as an aldohexose monosaccharide, containing five carbon atoms and consisting of aldehyde groups. It is derived from hemicellulose, which is one of the main materials of biomass.

Food additive D-Mannitol

D-Mannitol is a natural, unpatented molecule derived from free-floating hemicellulose in cranberries. It may help control urinary tract infections by preventing other kinds of bacteria from adhering to the walls of urinary tract cells. D-Mannitol may also help treat infections caused by Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Sweeteners Lactose

Lactose is a sugar found in milk and other dairy products. It is important for growing children and infants, who need it for energy and to gain weight. When your body does not produce enough of the digestive enzymes needed to break down lactose, you may experience digestive symptoms such as nausea and diarrhea.

Sweeteners Xylitol

Xylitol is a form of hexanol. It absorbs heat when dissolved, has a sweet taste, and a comfortable mouthfeel. Therefore, xylitol is more widely used in the manufacture of chewable tablets, such as hangover medicine and oral cooling agents. Its granular form is specifically used as a direct compression excipient. Xylitol is a high osmotic tissue dehydrator, widely used in the treatment of brain edema, prevention of acute renal failure, treatment of glaucoma, and acceleration of the excretion of toxic substances and drugs from the kidney.

Sweeteners Steviol glycosides

Steviol glycosides, also known as steviol glycosides, are a type of glycoside extracted from the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana. They are characterized by high sweetness and low caloric value. Their sweetness is 200-300 times that of sucrose, and their calorie value is only 1/300 of that of sucrose.

Sweeteners Galactooligosaccharides

Galactooligosaccharides (GOS) are a functional oligosaccharide with natural properties. The molecular structure usually consists of galactose or glucose molecules connected to 1-7 Gal, that is, Gal-(Gal) n -Glc/Gal (n 0-6). In nature, animal milk contains trace amounts of GOS, and breast milk contains a higher concentration of GOS, which is essential for the establishment of bifidobacteria in infants. Low-molecular-weight oligosaccharides are the only macromolecules that can be utilized by human intestinal bacteria.
