LYCASIN® 85/55 liquid maltitol is used as a vehicle and a humectant for syrups and suspensions, and as a bulk sweetener in lozenges and medicated confectionary. It is a highly concentrated maltitol solution with less water. It thus enables to add more water in the formulation to dissolve other components like API. LYCASIN® 85/55 contains maltitol, sorbitol and other hydrogenated oligomers, and has a high chemical and microbial stability. It can be used as a substitute for sucrose and meets organoleptic (natural sweetness) and health requirements (it is sugar-free, low-calorie, does not induce dental caries, and may be advised for diabetics).
