MOLECULAR WEIGHT: 182.17
APPLICATION: It is used as an inert sweetening agent in pharmaceutical preparations "without sugar", and in limited quantities in low-calorie dietary products for diabetics as a source of carbohydrates, since it causes practically no increase in blood glucose in the body and has almost the same energy power than that of glucose. As an oral excipient it is used as a vehicle for oral or topical solutions, as a plasticizing agent for gelatin capsules, and as a diluent in capsules and tablets prepared by wet granulation or direct compression.
Also used in Oral care and cosmetics: toothpaste, mouthwash, creams, ointments, lotions, shaving creams, and shampoo
APPEARANCE: Aqueous solution of hydrogenated and partially hydrolyzed starch, is a viscous water-like liquid with a slight sweet taste and mild odor.

GMO-free (EC Regulations 1829/2003 and 1830/2003): this product has not been manufactured with ingredients, additives and other materials from genetically modified materials, therefore, it is not included in the environment of application of the Regulations.
Oxidizing substances. Parabens. Polyethylene glycols.
Preparations containing concentrations greater than 40% in alcohol.
Aqueous solutions form soluble chelates with many di- and tri-valent metals in strongly acidic or alkaline media.
The 70% solution can replace glycerin as it is less hygroscopic.
Due to the hygroscopic nature, it prevents the progressive evaporation of the aqueous phase.
Not being absorbed by the skin, it creates a covering layer on it, which confers some occlusive hydration, softness, and lubrication.
Incorporates into emulsions in the aqueous phase
Storage: Store in a cool and dark place, away from light and moisture.
