Sisterna sucrose esters are produced by DKS in Japan, in a sophisticated plant that is dedicated to the production of sucrose esters only. The unique production method uses minimum solvents, as the purification of the sucrose esters is done by water. This process ensures a highly purified sucrose ester powder with >90% purity, while the regulatory minimum is >80%
