Lactitol

The DuPont™ Danisco® lactitol come in several forms for a broad range of applications, including the production of diabetic foods. 

It benefits from wide regulatory approval, globally including the USA, Canada and Japan, and is listed in the EU Sweetener Directive.

Lactitol is a disaccharide polyol with a sugar-like sweetness profile. This means, it provides a pleasant mild sweetness with no aftertaste and is ideal in formulations where bulking with a low sweetness is required. 

Where increased sweetness is required, lactitol can be blended with intense or bulk sweeteners, useful for low calorie or bulk foods. In reduced fat formulations, total or partial substitution of sucrose with lactitol can achieve greater calorie reductions.  

With a glycemic index of just 3 Lactitol has a negligible effect on blood sugar levels so can be used successfully in diabetic foods as well as products aimed at lifestyle dieting.
