The Benefits of using Maltitol in Sugar-Free chocolates
  • It is a natural sweetener made by hydrogenation of maltose which is obtained from starch. Maltitol is about 90% as sweet as sugar. It is a member of a family of bulk sweeteners known as polyols or sugar alcohol?. Maltitol is non-carogenic and significantly reduced in calories.
  • Maltitol may be useful for people with diabetes because it dose not raise blood glucose or insulin levels. Maltitol is slowly absorbed therefore when it is used, the rise in blood glucose and the insulin response associated with the ingestion of glucose is significantly reduced.
  • Although maltitol is often used to replace sugars, it may also be used to replace fat as it gives a creamy texture to food.
  • Maltitol is resistant to metabolism by oral bacteria which breaks down the sugar and starches in our food and drink intake that may lead to tooth decay. The American Food and Drug Administration(FDA) has approved the use of a "Does Not Promote tooth decay" health claim in the labeling of sugar free foods that contain maltitol.
