Is Isomalt edible? - Page 2

post #16 of 26
I sure hope it's edible...I ate a gem I made last weekend o_0 LOL, I believe it's just a different formulation of sugar for the most part.

I believe it is not to be used as a sugar substitute like say splenda because it can irritate the stomach if you eat more than a couple of ounces but for sugar jewels that shouldn't be an issue I'd think you'd break your teeth before you reached that limit.

I just finished watching that episode and was puzzled when he said that. I think he said, "it von't make you sick but, it is noit meant to be eaten" LOL

It's hard to tell with his accent but I think he said it's inedible but it CAN'T make you sick. Either way, he's wrong. This is the man who thinks a red velvet cake is nothing more than chocolate cake colored red. But he has a different POV, I guess.

Isomalt is edible, but should be eaten in small quantities, because as been stated on here, it can upset your stomach, give you gas and possibly give you diarrhea.

It's the same thing used in sugar free candies and if you read the packaging on those candies they will tell you not to eat a bunch of them at once.

In small doses you are fine and even some people probably wouldn't have issues. But it could be a issue for some.

Hi everyone!

I was trying to find some suggestions on how to make a miniature version of a shot glass for my daughters college graduation cake.

I've been reading this thread about isomalt and was wondering if any of you had any suggestions on how to use this or anything else to make "pint sized" shot glasses! They do NOT need to be edible - just decoration.

I'm new to using fondant, gum paste etc...but am attempting my first 3D figures for the graduation! 

Any thought or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Loripooky, you can make your shot glass out of rice krispys treats, Shape it then cover with fondan, hope this can get you started anyway. You also can look up photos of celebration cakes like New Year or other celebration type cake to get the design idea.

I saw that episode and that "judge" wrongly asked her "did you know that Isomalt is NOT EDIBLE? and she looked very surprised at his criticism and she just replied: "No I did not"

that goes to show you that some people say a lie that sounds like the truth, people believe it. Even the other 2 "judges" agreed. WRONG!

It is EDIBLE. Besides ISOMALT was a pantry item. not that she brought it from home.

Isomalt is edible, but if you eat too much you'll get diarrhea, cha cha cha. It would be easy to make a shot glass out of it if you used a silicone mold. Make a mold of a real shot glass, then pour the isomalt into the mold and turn it so that the isomalt spreads out and coats the inside of the mold as the sugar cools off.

Thank you so much for the advice! I appreciate it!
