Fructose or fruit sugar is a monosaccharide that can be found in many plants. Combined with glucose it creates the disaccharide sucrose.
It is extracted and refined from sugarcane or sugar beet, it’s formed by crushing the canes to produce raw sugar and then forwarded to manufacturers for refining.
Around 240 thousand tonnes of fructose is produced annually for the purpose of adding to products to enhance taste.
LFA’s Fructose is considered one of the sweeter sugars LFA offers in a DC grade, it’s ideal for products where you’re looking to mask bitter or unpleasant tastes.
All you have to do is add your flavouring, active or colour and Fructose DC grade will act as a binder and flowing agent.
It’s important to note you may need an anti-caking or dry lubricant depending on your active but feel free to reach out to our team and we will assist you with your formulation questions.
Feedback from customers has indicated that our fructose dissolves in the mouth in a smooth consistent manner resulting in a creamy feel that will provide longer consumption times as well as enjoyment from the product. If you need the product to disintegrate at a faster rate then this can be achieved by combining this tabletable fructose with super disintegrate.
LFA’s fructose is specially designed for tableting purposes and therefore normal fructose can’t be used.
