Recipe Highlights and Insights:
What is inverted sugar?
Inverted sugar is a mixture of glucose and fructose that results from the break down of sucrose, a disaccharide sugar composed of one glucose molecule and one fructose molecule. The hydrolysis process involves breaking the chemical bond between glucose and fructose with the help of an acid or an enzyme. The term “inverted” refers to the change in optical rotation of plane-polarized light that occurs during this hydrolysis process. Sucrose has a specific optical rotation, and when it is hydrolyzed into glucose and fructose, the resulting mixture rotates plane polarized light in the opposite direction.
Why is Inverted sugar commonly used in the food industry?
Prevents crystallization: Inverted sugar has a higher resistance to crystallization compared to sucrose, making it useful in the production of certain sweets, candies, and syrups where a smooth texture is desired.Moisture Retention: Inverted sugar has hygroscopic properties, meaning it attracts and retains moisture. This can help improve the moisture content and texture of baked goods.Enhancing Flavor: Inverted sugar can enhance the flavor and mouthfeel of certain products contributing to a smoother and creamier taste.Extended Shelf Life: Its resistance to crystallization and moisture-retaining properties contribute to an extended shelf life for certain products.
