+ Fructose Crystalline
Gadot offers a Crystalline Fructose that is non-GMO, produced from sugar into a pure white free flowing material. Fructose is found in many fruits, vegetables and even honey; it is one of the sweetest naturally occurring sugars. Crystalline Fructose is about one and half times sweeter than table sugar, with a low glycemic index. It offers excellent solubility and humectant properties, fruit flavor enhancement and helps to mask the bitter aftertaste when used in combination with artificial sweeteners.
Maltitol is a refined disaccharide alcohol made from corn starch. Available in a liquid or crystal form, it is typically colorless, transparent and easily soluble in water.

Maltitol provides moisture retention in candies and pastries, extending the shelf life.

+ Monk Fruit Extract
A Healthy, Natural Sweetness Solution:
For years food and beverage companies have been looking for natural alternatives to sugar. Monk fruit is a solution that delivers natural, great-tasting low-calorie sweetness. Consumers trust fruit because they associate it with healthy, delicious sweetness. Monk fruit provides a natural source of pure sweetness with the goodness of fruit, and because it’s concentrated there’s often room for other product enhancements like additional complex carbohydrates, fibers and whole grains.
Stevioside (stevia extract) is a white crystalline powder, extracted from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni. The main ingredients of stevia extract are stevioside and rebaudioside-A. While rebaudioside-A has a superior taste to stevioside, proper mixture ratio of each components and enzymatic glycosyl modification can enhance the sweet taste.
Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that has been commercially extracted from environmentally sustainable corn cob. It is a white, crystalline powder that looks and tastes like sugar, with no unpleasant aftertaste. Due to Xylitol's endothermic properties, it gives a cool and fresh sensation when eaten.
