Product code: K-SORB
The D-Sorbitol/Xylitol test kit for the determination Of D-Sorbitol And Xylitol In Foodstuffs, such as bakery goods, diabetic foods, chocolate, fruit, sweets and more.
Sorbitol is non-cariogenic and finds many dietetic applications, but can cause gastrointestinal problems in adults if large quantities are consumed (10-50 g per day). It has been safely used in processed foods for almost half a century and finds applications in the cosmetics and pharmaceuticals industries.
Note for Content: The number of manual tests per kit can be doubled if all volumes are halved. This can be readily accommodated using the MegaQuantTM Wave Spectrophotometer (D-MQWAVE).
