Throughout the world, isomalt is used primarily as a sugar substitute. It is a type of sugar alcohol, used mostly because of its sugar-like physical properties. It will not seriously affect blood sugar levels and does not promote tooth decay. Because the body treats it as a dietary fiber instead of as a carbohydrate, it has the same properties as fiber and will pass through the body virtually undigested.
In our world, Isomalt is used to create magnificent decorations for baked treats. Isomalt is a versatile, crystalline substance that is preferred by pastry and cake professionals for its stability and usability. It will not caramelize and darken like sugar when it is heated. Isomalt is fairly easy to use. Its clarity and the ability to color it make it ideal for crafting beautiful decorations that add amazing flair to your creations.
Isomalt can be simply melted and poured into a silicone mold or it can be kneaded to incorporate air to create a taffy-like substance for modeling and creating.
