ADM Sorbitol Solution 70%

ADM Sorbitol Solution 70%, USP/FCC, is a clear, colorless, and odorless aqueous solution containing about 71% total solids consisting essentially of D-Sorbitol with a small amount of mannitol and other polyhydric alcohols. It is a superior humectant in a wide range of products, including confections, cosmetics, and certain beverages and foods. Because of its sweet but non-cariogenic nature, it is used in sugar free foods, dentifrices, and pharmaceuticals. It is also used as a plasticizer, stabilizer and as a raw material in the manufacture of sorbitan esters/polysorbates and polyurethanes.

Storage & Handling

Storage Conditions

Sorbitol Solution, USP/FCC that is supplied in bulk tank trucks or tank railcars should be stored in stainless steel or FDA approved lined mild steel tanks equipped with ultraviolet sterile conditioning systems. The product should be stored above 70°F in order to prevent crystallization. If crystals have formed, the product may be returned to its normal state with heat and gentle agitation. Sorbitol is chemically and microbiologically stable and shelf life is indefinite for all practical purposes. However, as pH may drift down over time, it is recommended that pH be re-tested after one year. Product stored in vented tanks may decrease in water over time due to evaporation.
