What is Sucralose and how is it used in the food industry?

Sucralose is a non-caloric, high-intensity sweetener that is 600 times sweeter than sucrose. This sweetener is widely used in the food industry due to its extended shelf-life stability and heat resistance. It comes in several forms such as powder, granule, fine powder, and superfine powder.

Sucralose is commonly used in a variety of food and beverage products, including milk and dairy products, fat products, frozen beverages, canned fruits and vegetables, preserved fruits, roasted nuts and seeds, cocoa products, candy, grain products, baked goods, aquatic products, condiments, beverages, and jelly. It is used to make low-calorie fruit drinks, sauces, syrups, and canned fruits that are sweet without adding calories.

Liquid Sucralose is a clear, colorless liquid made with FCC grade Niutang Sucralose powder. It functions as a nonnutritive sweetener and flavor enhancer, and it can only be used in products with a pH of 7.0 or lower. For baked goods, the pH cannot be higher than 8.0.

Sucralose is also used as a sweetener in nutritional supplements, pharmaceuticals, vitamins, and mineral supplements. Its non-caloric nature makes it a popular choice for people who want to avoid sugar and maintain a healthy diet. Moreover, Sucralose has been approved by the US FDA as safe for human consumption and is considered a safe alternative to sugar.
