Properties

a-Lactose monohydrate dissolves slowly, which means that it cannot be used in instant food products. Three forms of anhydrous a-lactose are known (1-6). A stable anhydrous form is prepared by heating a-lactose monohydrate in air at 130°C. ^-Lactose is more soluble than a-lactose. It is prepared by heating a-lactose • H20 in an alcohol in the presence of a base. a-Lactose is also sweeter than is a-lactose, but each anomer will form the same equilibrium anomeric mixture in solution. The equilibrated solution is 15 to 30% as sweet as a sucrose solution of the same concentration.
