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 converted into a desired end product via a series of steps including liquefaction and hydrolysis. The syrup can then be further processed to decolour and concentrate. 

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

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.

We offer a full range of custom formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
