Sugar free sweetener solution

Risumalt® is isomalt, a sugar replacer naturally derived from sugar.

Risumalt® is particularly suitable for production of sugar free hard-boiled candies, either stamped or deposited as well as for coating of chewing gums. It provides bulk and texture benefits of sucrose in sugar free products, along with high visual and sensory appeal.

Risumalt® is manufactured with a novel and patented process. Due to the novel process, it has a unique isomer composition, which differs from commercially available isomalt. As shown in simulated candy stress tests at elevated relative humidity (rH) of 80%, moisture uptake is below 3%. This allows development of new sugar free products with an outstanding benefit. Risumalt® combines the advantages in sugar free application technology on the one hand, and offers outstanding performance for confectionary producers on the other hand.

Applications of Risumalt® (use as a sugar replacement with a very low hygroscopicity)

  • Candies such as drops and chewing gums
  • Bakery products such as cookies
  • Dietary supplements such as direct compressible tablets
  • Confectionaries such as chocolates and ice creams
