Category Management Studies

Sorbitol is made by hydrogenating an aqueous glucose solution in batches to produce the sugar alcohol sorbitol. Sorbitol is manufactured from various ingredients, including starch hydrolysates, dextrose syrup, and dextrose monohydrate. With this reliable method, Air Liquide Engineering & Construction may produce technical, culinary, or medicinal grade sorbitol. Glucose from wet milling facilities is used as a feedstock for sorbitol production. A nickel or ruthenium catalyst is utilised to hydrogenate the glucose solution in a batch reactor. After the reaction, which occurs at a temperature of 110 °Celsius and a pressure of 40 bar, the catalyst is recovered by filtering the resultant slurry. The crude sorbitol solution is purified and evaporated to the desired concentration using ion exchange. Clients that want to create sorbitol powder can use melt crystallisation. The technique produces sorbitol of technical, food, or medicinal quality, which is one of its advantages.
