E968 Erythritol is a sugar alcohol commonly used as a sweetener and occurs naturally in some fruits, mushrooms and fermented foods. At 70%, erythritol's sweetening power is slightly lower than that of table sugar (100%). At the same time, the sweetener contains only about 0.2 calories per gram and has a low glycemic index, which means that erythritol does not significantly affect blood sugar levels. For this reason, it is often used by people who want to reduce or control their sugar intake, especially people with diabetes. B2B producers and manufacturers offer colorless, sweet tasting crystals.
The food industry uses erythritol in a variety of products. Because of its cooling effect on the tongue and lack of aftertaste, E968 is added to foods and beverages. Other products in which E968 erythritol is used as an ingredient include baked goods such as cakes, cookies and bread; beverages such as coffee, tea and smoothies; confectionery; chewing gum; dairy products such as yogurt and ice cream; sauces and dressings; jams and jellies; and snacks such as granola bars and nut/fruit mixes. In these applications, E968 replaces table sugar as a sweetener.
The erythritol market has grown significantly in recent years due to increased interest in natural and low-calorie sweeteners. Key drivers for the growth market include increasing demand for healthier and lower-calorie foods and growing awareness of the link between high sugar intake and health issues such as obesity and diabetes. The major B2B suppliers, vendors, and wholesalers are based in Asia, with China being the world's largest producer and exporter of erythritol. Other major suppliers include Japan, South Korea and the US.
Although food manufacturers are the largest buyer group of E968 erythritol, manufacturers in other industries are also customers of E968 erythritol suppliers. The sugar alternative can be used in toothpaste and mouthwashes as a non-cavity forming sweetener. It is also used as a zero-calorie sugar alternative in pet foods and treats. In the manufacture of pharmaceutical products, erythritol is an excipient that increases bulk and facilitates the delivery of active ingredients. In addition, E968 is a natural alternative to synthetic fragrances in detergents, while its low toxicity and environmental impact allow it to be used in industrial applications such as antifreeze and coolants.
