25 Kilo Bag Option for Sucralose

What is Sucralose?

An artificial sweetener, Sucralose is a non-caloric alternative to sugar (sucrose) that is usually 320 to 1,000 times sweeter than sugar. It is usually around 600 times sweeter and commonly used in food and beverages to replace sugar. It is in pharmaceutical and oral hygiene products such as toothpaste and mouthwash.

It is primarily manufactured through the chlorination of sugar to maximise its benefits without losing its properties by replacing parts of sugar molecules with Chlorine atoms. The resulting compound is incredibly stable. This stability means it is resistant to various temperatures and pH conditions while giving it a reasonably long shelf life. Sucralose is manufactured under strict conditions to ensure its purity, safety and quality. The production process involves several steps, including chlorination, purification, and drying. The resulting product is a white, crystalline powder used in various food and beverage products, pharmaceuticals, and personal care products.

Companies that produce sweeteners in a 1:1 ratio for regular use in food, beverage, pharmaceutical and sports nutrition industries combine Sucralose as the primary ingredient and other products. These additions range from dextrose and maltodextrin to other sweeteners (Acesulfame K, Aspartame and Sodium Saccharin) and bulking agents. Due to its stable nature and longer shelf life, Sucralose is ideal for use in baked goods. Alongside this, it is both calorie-free and a product that does not promote cavities, making it suitable for people with diabetes. This suitability makes it a perfect sugar replacement for many industries, including confectionery, drinks and diet foods.

Beyond the food and beverage industry, Sucralose is also in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. Pharmaceutical companies use it in chewable tablets, syrups, and other medications that require a sweet taste. In cosmetics, it is used as a sweetener and a humectant in skincare and haircare products to help retain moisture. Finally, Sucralose has occasional uses in industrial applications. These applications include the production of adhesives, coatings, and plastics. Its non-caloric nature, stability, and resistance to heat and acidity make it a versatile ingredient in various industries.
