PT Sorini Towa Berlian Corporindo offers polyols especially sorbitol liquid and crystalline sorbitol to the dietary supplement, dietetic, food, cosmetic, personal care and many other industries.
Dietary Supplements & Health
Sorbitol is useful in formulating "diet", "sugar-free", "reduced calorie", and "light" labelled products. It is commonly found in many of today's consumer goods and ready-to-eat foods that offer reduced sugar levels. Compared to ordinary table-top sugar, sorbitol has 35% lower calories (sorbitol provides 2.6 kcal/gram; table-top sugar provides 4 kcal/gram).

     
Cosmetics & Personal Care
Many cosmetic applications like skin creams, foundation, lipstick and other lotions use sorbitol in their formulations. Sorbitol is frequently used as an humectant, emollient and conditioning agent because its characteristic properties mean that is able to protect against loss of moisture. Sorbitol also gives up water very slowly into a dry atmosphere and it will take up water very slowly from a humid atmosphere. 
  
Many personal care products like shampoo, toothpaste, soap include sorbitol to help retain their freshness, softness, and flexibility. It is non-cariogenic and does not promote tooth decay which means that sorbitol is an essential ingredient for the toothpaste industry.


     

Food
Sorbitol is very suitable for the health-conscious consumer who wants a healthier alternative without compromising on taste. With its reduced caloric value, low absorption rate, low glycaemic index, and smooth mouth feel with a sweet, cool and pleasant taste no wonder it is widely used in dietetic, and diabetic foods as bulk sweetener to replace sugar. 

In candy manufacture, sorbitol is used as a sugar free reduced calorie sweetener. It is also used to improve candy's softness and chewy texture. In ice cream, it is usually used to provide sweetness, impart body and texture. In fruit jam and peanut butter, sorbitol is used as a humectant to reduce dryness and improve spreadability. 

In the processing of surimi, such as with imitation crab, sorbitol is used to preserve the quintessential characteristic of surimi, namely the ability to form a firm texture. The incorporation of cryoprotectant materials such as sorbitol protects the surimi from degradation during freezing.
