(Entertainment-NewsWire.com, January 10, 2018 ) Global Sugar Alcohols Market was worth USD 10.22 billion in 2016 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 6.5%, to reach USD 14 billion by 2021. Sugar alcohols, which is a class of polyols, are commonly added to food products because of their lower caloric content than sugars. They are also, in general, less sweet, and are often combined with high-intensity sweeteners. They are also an active ingredient in chewing gum because they are not broken down by bacteria in the mouth or metabolized to acids, and thus do not contribute to tooth decay. Maltitol, sorbitol, xylitol, erythritol, and isomalt are some of the more common types of sugar alcohols or polyols. Sugar alcohols may be formed under mild reducing conditions from their analogue sugars.
The most common sources of sugar alcohol are fruits and berries. The carbohydrate in these plant products is altered through a chemical process. These sugar substitutes provide somewhat fewer calories than table sugar (sucrose), mainly because they are not well absorbed and may even have a small laxative effect. In several commercial foodstuffs, sugar alcohols are commonly used in place of table sugar (sucrose), often in combination with high-intensity artificial sweeteners to counter the low sweetness. Xylitol is perhaps the most popular sugar alcohol due to its similarity to sucrose in visual appearance and sweetness.
