Thus, it finds extensive application in the production of beverages, ice-creams, jams, syrups, toothpastes and other oral care products among others. The growth in the demand of sorbitol in the sectors like food and beverages, cosmetics and personal care, and pharmaceutical industry has been due to an increasing awareness of how sugar-based products are detrimental to the health and the mounting purchasing power parity. Its moisture-stabilizing property makes it an ideal additive to products which need to maintain their freshness in storage. Sorbitol prevents the hardening or drying of such products. It can also combine easily with fats, sugars and gelling agents due to its ability to withstand high temperatures. Thus, sorbitol is added to products such as confectionaries and baked goods, among other products.
