Sorbitol is one of many sugar alcohols found in nature that gets metabolized slower in our bodies than other normal dietary sugars. Also known as glucitol, sorbitol is a result of the hydrogenation of the aldehyde moiety of glucose, giving glucose a terminal hydroxyl group. This is significant in its pharmacology and lower caloric yield. Sorbitol is low caloric refined sugar alcohol, which is produced from dextrose. Chemically it is hexahydric alcohol and is also known as hexatol, D Glucitol and D Sorbitol. Chemically, Sorbitol is a hexitol, C6H14O6, found in nature as the sweet constituent of many berries and fruits best known from Sorbus aucuparia (Rowan or European Rowan) from which it was isolated for the first time in 1872. Sorbitol is today commercially produced from starch by enzymatic hydrolysis and catalytic hydrogenation. It has wide applications as a sweetener and humectant. Sorbitol has a smooth mouth feel with a sweet, cool and pleasant taste. It shares many applications with propylene glycol and glycerine and glycerine provides hard competition in the market for humectants. Sorbitol acts as a crystallization modifier or inhibitor; it can prevent syrups from forming crystals of sugar. It is used to add body and viscosity to mixtures, and can protect against damage from freezing (cryoprotectant) and drying. Applications & Uses Sorbitol, together with other polyhydric alcohols such as glycerol, is one of the ingredients in alkyl resins and rigid polyurethane foams manufacturing. In tobacco industries, sorbitol may give mild effect in sniff, good humectant agent, and avoid acrolein formation which formed in burned glycerine. Sorbitol is used as softener and colour stabiliser in textiles and as softener in leather industries. Sorbitol sweet tastes form a viscous solution, stabilises moisture, possesses bacterio static property and is generally chemically inert. These features and properties make sorbitol an ideal and preferred ingredient in many products. It is being used by pharmaceutical industry, tooth paste manufacturers, food products industry, Oral Hygiene, Skin Cream and Cream Foundation, Textiles, Tobacco, Confectionery, Cosmetics, Emulsion, Diabetic Diets and many others. The increasing use of sorbitol in various end uses has made many big manufacturers to take interest in manufacturing of this. Looking to the trends the world economy. Market Survey Sorbitol is an organic chemical, having varied end uses. It is edible, non crystalline, odorless, white powder and having sweet cooling taste. It is highly soluble in water and slightly in methylalcohol. Sorbitol solutions are high stable. It is marketed mostly in the form of 70 per cent solution. The process involved is very simple, raw materials are indigenously available, technical knowhow is easily available and all these make the project very attractive one. An attempt is made here to study the state and structure of the industry. It is felt that sorbitol will have a very good future. The demand for sorbitol would depend upon the development of its end uses and the shape these end uses industries are likely to take in the future. Pharma and the dentifrice sector are expected to continue dominating the market for sorbitol. A newly developing outlet for sorbitol is its use in producing clarifying agents for polypropylene. Clarifying agents enable polypropylene to substitute for higher cost polymers in food packaging, drinking cups and house wares. Demand for transparent packages and resin moldings are increasing worldwide. Few Indian Major Players are as under: Amaravati Agro Ltd. Gayatri Bioorganics Ltd. Gulshan Polyols Ltd.
