Isomalt is a type of sugar alcohol manufactured from sugar, which is primarily used for its sugar like physical properties. It maintains a workable texture far longer than normal sugar and is a lot stronger, making it the best form of sugar to use for sugar art work.

Isomalt has only 2 calories per gram and is diabetic-friendly.

It is white crystalline and odourless.

Advantages of Isomalt:

  • Low hygroscopicity- absorbs very little moisture

This is the greatest advantage of Isomalt. Isomalt absorbs virtually no moisture at a temperature of 25ºC and a relative humidity up to 85%. Isomalts hygroscopicity is lower than that of all other sugar alcohols and even sugar itself. As a result, Isomalt makes products highly stable when stored.

  • No Caramelisation – has a high heat resistance

Isomalt melts only between 145 and 150ºC and its chemical structure is not altered at normal cooking temperatures. Sweets made with Isomalt can develop their full flavour, enabling you to make high boiled products with delicate aromas.

  • Isomalt blends well with any flavour

Unlike many other sugar alcohols (xylitol or erythritol), Isomalt has no undesired cooling effect and can be blended with any flavour from minty to fruity

  • Mild sweetness

Isomalt can be combined with intense sweeteners to achieve any desired sweetness profile. Isomalt tastes just as natural and pure as sugar although its sweetening power is about 60% that of sugar

  • Good solubility

The solubility of Isomalt is 24g in 100g of solution at 24ºC, increasing at greater temperatures

  • Sugar free

Isomalt is not absorbed by the body the way sugar is and is therefore diabetic friendly
