SUGAR DHW Alcohols

Specific Properties of DHW and Spray-Dried Sugar alcohols belong to the group of polyhydric alcohols and are produced by a catalytic of natural Unique benefits for your applications by specific particle structures . They are naturally present in smaller quantities in fruits as well as in certain kinds of vegetables. DHW sugar alcohols comprise the products Sorbitol, Xylitol and . By means of the specifically developed spraying technology, unique application benefits can be achieved by the Sorbitol is a hexavalent sugar and is derived from the catalytic reduction of . Xylitol is produced by formation of a specific particle structure. catalytic hydrogenation of the pentahydric alcohol . Maltitol is obtained of natural after catalytic hydrogenation.
