What is Isomalt?..... Isomalt is a sugar substitute which has been obtained from sugar beet by treating it with enzymes. Isomalt is chemically grouped as disaccharide alcohol (polyol), it is safe for the teeth and has 50% less calories than table sugar. Food containing isomalt instead of sugars induces a lower blood glucose rise and lower insulinemic response after consumption compared to sugar. Isomalt has a melting point of 145°C to 150°C and is pre-tempered so it can be easily melted in the microwave.
Precautions: When working with liquid Isomalt remember to take great care as it can cause serious burns if spilled onto the skin. For this reason, Isomalt should NOT be used by children.
