Xylitol and erythritol for direct compression
Alsiano offers erythritol and xylitol contribute effective compaction properties within specific tableting applications and usages
Alsiano offers direct compression versions (DC) of erythritol and xylitol product offerings for the tableting industries for filling or binding applications. Both products are sugar free low calorie bulk sweeteners containing exceptional sweetness and flavour improvement.
DC production methodology requires excipients of a high quality and functionality. Xylitol and erythritol can contribute where simple tableting applications are required. They are now increasingly used and principally adapted to direct compression applications for high-quality chewable lozenges or tablets, with a pleasant taste and texture.
Low and almost zero calorie
Erythritol and xylitol can offer tableting processors potential to utilise a low kcal product offering and almost zero kcal offering too if erythritol is chosen. Our products can achieve the desired texture, appearance and dosage combined with mouthfeel and sweetness flavour which are key components of various formulations.
Xylitol already well regarded for its excellent oral care and dental properties in the oral consumable confectionery market of chewing gums can offer calorie reduction, sweetness, flavour enhancement and cooling effect as well. Erythritol also provides excellent sweetness and offers zero calorie opportunities and product claims.
