So, what is isomalt?

Isomalt is a sugar substitute that is commonly used in the food industry as a low-calorie alternative to sugar. It is derived from beet sugar and is a type of sugar alcohol that has a similar taste and texture to sugar. Isomalt is also resistant to moisture, which makes it a popular choice for producing sugar-free candies, chocolate, and baked goods. Additionally, isomalt has a low glycemic index, which means that it does not cause a rapid spike in blood sugar levels like regular sugar does. Isomalt is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a wide range of products to reduce calories and improve overall health.
