Sorbitol Production Cost Reports

Food and Beverages

Sorbitol, which is less widely known as glucitol, is a sugar alcohol with a sweet taste that the human body can metabolise slowly. It is an isomer of mannitol, which is also a sugar alcohol. It can be derived or extracted by the loss of glucose, that alters the converted aldehyde group or -CHO into the leading alcohol group. Most of the sorbitol is made from potato starch, but it is also found in nature, for instance, it is found in apples, pears, peaches, and in prunes. It is converted to fructose using sorbitol-6-phosphate 2-dehydrogenase. 

Sorbitol is a sugar substitute and is nearly 60% sweeter than sucrose or table sugar. It is often utilised in diet foods, including diet drinks as well as ice cream, mints, cough syrups, or sugar-free chewing gum. It can be used as a laxative and for the treatment of hyperkalaemia.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Sorbitol production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
