ingredient information
derived from sugar, Isomalt is a unique, excellent tasting sugar-free sweetener. Because the same amount of isomalt is used in products as would be used if they were sweetened with sugar, isomalt-containing products have the same appearance and texture as those made with sugar. Discovered in the 1960s, isomalt is made from sucrose and looks much like table sugar. It is white, crystalline and odorless. Isomalt is a mixture of two disaccharide alcoholsgluco mannitol and gluco sorbitol.
