What is D-xylose ?

D-xylose is a five-carbon sugar obtained by hydrolysis of hemicellulose-containing plants. It has a slight special smell and refreshing sweetness, and its sweetness is about 40% of that of sucrose.

The chemical formula of D-xylose is C5H10O5, colorless to white crystal or white crystalline powder, with a slight special smell and refreshing sweetness. The melting point is 114 degrees, it is dextrorotatory and variable optical rotation, and it is easily soluble in hot ethanol and pyrimidine.

Our D-xylose is made from drying corncob → acid washing hydrolysis → filtration → neutralization → decolorization → concentration → ion exchange purification → crystallization → centrifugal separation → drying → finished product. Mainly used as food additives, sweeteners, raw materials for health care products.

As a new functional food ingredient, D-xylose is widely used in various functional foods due to its excellent processing characteristics and various physiological regulating functions.

Have the following aspects:

1. Regulate intestinal flora and promote the proliferation of bifidobacteria

D-xylose can selectively promote the proliferation of intestinal bifidobacteria and other beneficial bacteria, making it a dominant intestinal flora, regulating the intestinal microecological balance, and promoting intestinal health.

2. Lower blood pressure, serum cholesterol and blood sugar

D-xylose is a water-soluble dietary fiber and has some physiological functions of dietary fiber. D-xylose has a good effect on preventing hyperlipidemia.

3. Low Calories

D-xylose is difficult to be decomposed by the human digestive enzyme system. Saliva, gastric juice, pancreatic juice and small intestinal juice can hardly decompose D-xylose, and its energy value is almost zero. Therefore, D-xylose can be used as a diet food And the raw material of blood sugar regulating food.

4. Anti-caries teeth

D-xylose cannot be utilized by bacteria in the mouth, nor can it be broken down by oral enzymes. When D-xylose and sucrose are used together, it can prevent sucrose from being utilized by caries pathogenic bacteria to generate tartar, inhibit the adhesion of glucose to teeth, and prevent deashing of enamel on the tooth surface.

5. Generate nutrients

Human intake of D-xylose promotes the proliferation of beneficial intestinal bacteria such as bifidobacteria. During the metabolic process of intestinal beneficial bacteria, nutrients such as vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, niacin and folic acid will be produced substance.
