        Erythritol, chemical name:1,2,3,4-Butanetetraol, Molecular formula:C4H10O4, Molecular weight:122.12, melting point: 118℃ -122℃, boiling point:329-331℃, expectation life:36 month, is powder with a transparent white brilliant appearance, tastes sweet slightly, crystallizes easily and feels pleasantly cool, relative sweet degree 0.7 or so, non-caloric, only one of ten caloric ability compared with cane sugar.

    Erythritol is a new kind of nutrition edulcorator characterizing good thermo-stability, bad accessibility, low ice point, it has broad application fields such as food, medicine, cosmetics, chemical industry,etc.

    Erythritol is used in food manufacturing such as baking and roasting foods, cakes, dairy produce, chocolate, all kinds candies, dessert, gum, soft drink, ice-cream etc. which keeps foods good in color, sweet-smelling, sapor and prevent foods from deterioration.

    Erythritol can not be degraded by enzyme, so it is very suitable for patients suffering diabetes because of no catabolism. It is also made into low-caloric health food, as the substitute of cane sugar, suitable for patients suffering obesity, hypertension, and cardiac disease.

    Erythritol can’t ferment in colon, so it has the function to proliferate clearly bifid bacterium, avoid gastro enteric discomfort and enhance the immune ability.

    Erythritol resists decayed tooth effectively, caused mainly by streptococcus eroding tooth enamel, because erythritol can not be used by streptococcus, the candies and special tooth purificant made by using erythitol has an active function for children’s no nasality health.

    Erythritol, as one kind of all-natural food ingredient, is approved by many countries or organizations for food manufacturing such as Japan, America, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Russia, Israel, South Africa, Mexico and JECFA,
