Zolli Candy Ingredient Spotlight: Isomalt

Zolli Candy Uses Isomalt - Here's Why

What is Isomalt?

Isomalt is a tooth-friendly, naturally sourced sugar replacement and is the only sweetener exclusively derived from sugar beet. It is 100% sugar-free and even helps to prevent tooth decay. Isomalt’s sweetening profile is about the same as sucrose (sugar) – but with half the calories!

Zolli Candy incorporates Isomalt, which stands out for its anti-cariogenic properties. Isomalt, a key ingredient in Zolli Candy, does not contribute to dental caries as oral bacteria cannot easily convert it into acids that lead to decay. Unlike sugar and other fermentable carbohydrates, consuming isomalt does not create acidic conditions that result in tooth demineralization. Additionally, oral bacteria are unable to convert isomalt into polyglucan, the substance responsible for the formation of dental plaque.


The inclusion of Isomalt in Zolli Candy not only prevents the development of acidic conditions that harm teeth but also plays a role in repairing early dental caries lesions. The sweet taste of Isomalt stimulates saliva production, effectively reducing acidity and promoting an increase in calcium levels on the tooth surface. These positive changes facilitate the remineralization process in areas that were previously damaged by acidic conditions caused by the consumption of fermentable carbohydrates.

Isomalt is:

  • Zero sugar

  • Isomalt has been used for decades, safe, tested, and approved for use by public health authorities all over the world.

Isomalt Health Benefits:

  • Reducing the risk of tooth decay
  • Improving digestive health (see study reference below)
  • Helping to regulate blood sugar levels
  • Reducing cholesterol levels
  • Improving heart health

Isomalt has been used for decades, tested, and approved by the FDA for oral health. It is also approved for use by public health authorities all over the world. The FDA approves oral health claims for Isomalt, which supports a healthy smile and oral health. The FDA has also concluded, based on scientific evidence, to support the relationship between sugar alcohols such as xylitol, sorbitol, maltitol (and others) with the non promotion of dental caries.

Isomalt is a prebiotic carbohydrate that has been shown to improve flora in the digestive system, making your tummy healthy and happy. It has several health benefits, including reducing the risk of tooth decay, improving digestive health, helping to regulate blood sugar levels, reducing cholesterol levels, and improving heart health.

Isomalt, which is used widely as a low-glycemic and low-energy sweetener, has to be considered a prebiotic carbohydrate that might contribute to a healthy luminal environment of the colonic mucosa. A study conducted by NIH NLM found that isomalt consumption improves faecal microflora and colonic metabolism in healthy volunteers12.
