CAS Number: 50-70-4
Molecular weight: 182.17
Molecular formula: C6H14O6
Grade: Food Grade
Appearance: white powder
Mesh number: 60
Packing: 25KG/kraft paper bag
Properties: White hygroscopic powder or crystalline powder, flakes or granules, odorless. Depending on the crystallization conditions, the melting point varies from 88 to 102°C, and the relative density is about 1.49. It is easily soluble in water (1g can be dissolved in about 0.45mL water), slightly soluble in ethyl acetate and acetic acid. The sweetness is about half that of sucrose, and its calorific value is similar to that of sucrose.
Application: Nutritional sweeteners, wetting agents, chelating agents and stabilizers. It is a special sweetener with moisturizing function. It can be used in cakes, the maximum use amount is 5.0g/kg; in surimi and its products, the maximum use amount is 0.5g/kg. It can also be used as a defoaming agent, used in sugar making process, brewing process and soy product process, and used in appropriate amount according to production needs. It can also be used to moisturize raisins, thicken and preserve aroma of alcoholic beverages and refreshing beverages, as well as candy and chewing gum.
Preparation: It can be prepared by heating and pressurizing hydrogenation of glucose in the presence of a nickel catalyst. To
1. Daily chemical industry
Sorbitol is used as an excipient, moisturizer, and antifreeze in toothpaste, and the addition amount can reach 25-30%, which can keep the paste lubricating, with good color and taste; in cosmetics, it can be used as an anti-drying agent (instead of glycerin). The stretchability and lubricity of the emulsifier are suitable for long-term storage; the sorbitan fatty acid ester and its ethylene oxide adduct have the advantage of less skin irritation and are widely used in the cosmetics industry.
2. Food industry
Adding sorbitol to food can prevent the food from cracking and keep the food fresh and soft. It has obvious effect when used in bread and cake.
Sorbitol has a lower sweetness than sucrose and is not used by certain bacteria. It is an important raw material for the production of sugar-free candies and various anti-caries foods. Since the metabolism of this product does not cause blood sugar to rise, it can also be used as a sweetener and nutrient for diabetic food.
Sorbitol does not contain aldehyde groups, is not easy to be oxidized, and does not produce Maillard reaction with amino acids when heated. It has a certain physiological activity and can prevent the denaturation of carotenoids and edible fats and proteins. Adding this product to concentrated milk can extend the shelf life and improve the color and flavor of the small intestine. It has obvious stabilization and long-term preservation of fish sauce . It has the same effect in jams and preserves.
3. Major industries
Sorbitol can be used as a raw material for the production of vitamin C; it can also be used as a raw material for syrup, injection and infusion, medical tableting, as a drug dispersant, filler, cryoprotectant, anti-crystallization agent, traditional Chinese medicine stabilizer, wetting agent, capsule plasticizer Agent, sweetener, ointment base, etc.
4. Chemical industry
Sorbitol rosin resin is often used as a raw material for architectural coatings. It can be used as a plasticizer and lubricant in polyvinyl chloride resins and other polymers.
It is complexed with iron, copper and aluminum ions in alkaline solution and used in bleaching and washing in textile industry.
Sorbitol and propylene oxide are used as starting materials to produce rigid polyurethane foams and have certain flame retardant properties.
