What is maltitol?

Maltitol is a food additive used in industry as a sugar substitute in low-sugar and sugar-free products.

It belongs to the group of sugar alcohols, polyalcohols and is derived from maltose, which is derived from the natural starch of maize. It is available in both liquid and powder form.

One of its main advantages over other substitutes is that it does not flavour the food in which it is used and provides the same sweetness as sugar. These characteristics enable it to be used in a wide variety of products sold in supermarkets.

It is known as the diabetic sugar, as it has similar characteristics, but is metabolised more slowly. This allows people with diabetes to avoid insulin spikes in their blood and to continue eating sweet products.


One of the basic uses of maltitol is to sweeten foods without adding many calories.

It is used in powder form in the food industry to make ice cream, industrial pastries, cakes, bread, dairy products and any type of product labelled “sugar-free”. In liquid form it is used to make sweets, chewing gum, mouthwash, toothpaste, etc.

Benefits of maltitol

Lower glycaemic response

One of the main benefits of maltitol is its ability to sweeten, as it provides between 70% and 90% of the sweetness of sucrose.

Very useful for the production of sucrose-free chocolate.

Due to its anhydrous crystalline form, its high melting point and its stability, maltitol is a perfect substitute in the confectionery, bakery, chocolate and ice cream sections.


It is lower in calories

Maltitol provides 2.4 calories per gram, whereas sugar provides the body with 4 calories per gram.

Does not affect the development of caries

Maltitol is a non-cariogenic product, i.e. it does not cause tooth decay. Therefore, if we want to avoid damaging the enamel and the dreaded mouth fillings, the ideal is to consume sugar-free products that are produced with maltitol.
