SWEETENER FILTRATION Imerys perlite and diatomite for optimal filtration of glucose fructose syrups and liquid sweeteners

Imerys offers a range of diatomite and perlite grades for filtering sweeteners such as glucose fructose syrup, isoglucose and maltose.  

Glucose fructose syrup is one of several products - together with glucose, dextrose and maltose - derived from the wet milling of various starch sources such as wheat, maize and barley. The starch is then converted into the desired end product via a series of steps including liquefaction and hydrolysis. The syrup may then be further processed to de-color and concentrate.

Imerys offers a range of diatomite and perlite filter aids for filtering glucose fructose syrup and its derivatives at various stages of this process.

Imerys diatomite and perlite grades offer:

  • A good balance of permeability and clarity
  • High flow rates
  • Low solids penetration


All our filtration products are FCC approved and manufactured in GMP facilities.
