25 Kilo Bag Option for Xylose

Overview: What is Xylose?

Xylose is a sugar that is rooted in wood. Like most sugars, it has several structures to suit its conditions. It is sold as a white powder to dissolve in various solutions easily.

In manufacture, Xylose has a few processes dependant on the source. The most common, D-Xylose, occurs through taking a range of raw materials through Hydrolysis, dissolving them into a blend. This is decoloured, filtered, purified and evaporated before its final crystalization. The last step is to centrifuge these crystals before refining, drying, milling and packaging the Xylose.

As a type of sugar, Xylose applications are rooted in a range of food and beverage products. They can still find it in a range of veterinary goods, industrial applications, and a precursor for another product, Xylitol.

The primary application as a sweetener means you can find Xylose in a range of food and beverage products, ranging from confectionery, soft drinks, sauces, soups, baked goods, and even a range of processed meats. Other applications beyond human consumption include Pet Foods as a sweetening agent, industrial applications in polymer and hydrogen production, and finally in a range of pharmaceuticals.
