Isomalt is a sugar-free sweetener used for making hard candy. Unlike conventional sugar, Isomalt is much more resistant to humidity and crystallization so decorative elements made with it have a longer shelf life and structural integrity. It is preferred by pastry and cake professionals for its stability and usability. Isomalt is used almost exclusively in televised food competitions and culinary art salons where professionals create dramatic showpieces and decorative cake ornaments. It is derived from beet sugar and does not promote tooth decay. It may be suitable for individuals needing to control their blood glucose and insulin levels, or for lower calorie, healthier recipe alternatives. Net weight: 30 oz.
