Ingredients supplier, Danisco, has secured and increased its production of xylose, the raw materials for xylitol production, with the completion of Danisco Sweeteners GmbH plant in Austria.
Danisco is a leading supplier of xylitol, the cariostatic bulk sweetener recognised world-wide for its unique dental benefits.
The completion of the plant expansion in Austria will significantly increase Danisco’s capacity to supply the raw material for xylitol production.
Utilising the company’s proprietary and patented technology, xylose is manufacturerd from hardwood sources at a competitive cost.
Manufacturing efficiency is enhanced by close co-operation with Lenzing AG, a leader in cellulose fibre technology.
Xylitol is approved for food use in over 50 countries and this, combined with increasing commercial and scientific interest in xylitol globally, has led to a strong demand for xylitol in the global market.
