About Products

What is this product ?

D-Xylose is a sugar first isolated from woodbase or corncob, and named for it. Xylose is classified as a monosaccharide of the aldopentose type, which means that it contains five carbon atoms and includes an aldehyde functional group. D-xylose is also the raw material of xylitol.

What’s the product application ?

1. Chemicals
Xylose can be used as a raw material for xylitol. After hydrogenation, it is catalyzed to make xylitol. This is raw-grade xylose as what we often say.  xylose can also produce glycoside glycerol, such as ethylene glycol xylosides.

2. Sugar-free sweetener
The sweetness of xylose equals to70% of sucrose. It can replace sucrose to produce sugar-free candies, beverages, desserts, etc. It has  good taste and is suitable for diabetics and people who lose weight. Because xylose is well tolerated, excessive consumption will not cause abdominal pain and diarrhea.

3. Flavor enhancer
Xylose has a Maillard reaction after heating. It is added to meat and food products in small amounts. The color, flavor and aroma of the food will be more beautiful during the process of steaming, boiling, frying and roasting.

Using the Maillard reaction of xylose in pet food can improve the appetite and palatability of pet food so pets prefer to eat a little more. Xylose can also promote the production of pet saliva and gastric juice to increase the intestine beneficial bacteria ,so it is helpful for chewing, digestion and absorption to improve the immunity of pets and their growth.
