Material Characterization of the Next Generation Sugar Substitutes

Particle Characterization

As research begins to link obesity and diabetes with excessive sugar consumption, the market for naturally-derived sugar substitutes or intense sweeteners has grown and is projected to continue to grow. Two types of high-intensity sweeteners gaining consumer popularity have recently been submitted to the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for GRAS (generally recognized as safe) notices, these are stevia and monk fruit. A consistent particle size is desired for better control of mixing, dissolution, and packing. This study focuses on the critical particle diameter of dry sugar granules as particle diameter is an indicator of: Flowability, Dissolution and mixing, and Powder uniformity.
