It is classified into powder and liquid, as well as IMO-500 and IMO-900 content.
Characteristics & Application of IMO-900
IMO-900 has characteristics of low sweet, low calorie, low viscosity, low water activity, good moisture retention, non-fermentation, and fine acid and heat endurance. Its physiological effects include powerful growth stimulation of bifido-bacteria, tooth decay resistance, alleviating the fatigue, improving the peristalsis of intestines, preventing constipation, enhancing immunity and deterring the growth of harmful germs and noxious putrid substances.
IMO-900 is widely used in food industry such as beverage, milk, confectionery and pastry, without masking their natural flavor and initial quality, even more gaining such nutritious and healthcare effects that will improve the grade of products and strengthen their competitiveness on the market.

Mildly sweet (half as sweet as sucrose)
A bifidus growth factor
Prevent tooth decay
Having a high moisture retaining capacity conferring improved resistance to microbial infection
Act as an anti-staling agent
Suitable for patient with diabetes
