The chemical purity of a substance refers to the proportion of a desired substance to the total mixture of substances. The undesired substances are called impurities. Our cellobiose is supplied as a white crystalline powder.
Cellobiose is the basic building block of cellulose and a purely plant-based raw material that also occurs naturally in pine needles, honey and maize. We primarily rely for our production on sugar beet as a source of raw materials. Cellobiose is not only characterised by the fact that it strongly resembles lactose. Due to its special technological properties, it can be used in many different ways. In terms of its chemical and physical properties, as well as its similarity to lactose, cellobiose can be used as a versatile ingredient of food and in drinks. Compared to sucrose, our cellobiose multifunctional sugar has 50% fewer calories.
