Sweetener Applications

Purolite offers a full line of high-performance resins for all sweetener refining applications produced from starch sources such as corn, wheat, tapioca and rice. Purolite resins are used for softening, demineralization, chromatographic separation, mixed bed polishing, enzyme support and color, taste and odor removal.

Some common applications for ion exchange resin in sweetener applications include:

  • Sweetener demineralization using standard or high capacity products
  • Dextrose, fructose and polyol enrichment chromatographic separation resins
  • Sweetener mixed bed polishing
  • Sweetener color, taste and odor adsorbents
Adsorbents for Corn Sweetener Refining

Adsorbents resins are effective for color removal and taste and odor improvement of starch hydrolysate plant-based sweetener solutions, such as corn syrups— as well as for removing hydroxymethylfurfural and other impurities. See Sweetener Products by Application below.

Due to their high surface area and ease of regeneration, Macronet™ adsorbent resins offer economic, purity and process advantages to other adsorption methods, resulting in higher quality syrup.
