Palatinose™ is a naturally sourced smart sugar, that provides full carbohydrate energy (4kcal/g) in a more balanced way, resulting in a low glycaemic effect. It helps to improve fat oxidation during physical activity leading to prolonged energy supply. Also, it is the first non-cariogenic sugar, making it kind to teeth.

Palatinose™ (isomaltulose) is purely based on sucrose from sugar beet. It is 100% vegan, kosher, halal and non-GMO. It is commercially produced by enzymatic rearrangement of the glycosidic bond between glucose and fructose from an  α-1.2 linkage of sucrose to an α-1.6-glycosidic bond in Palatinose™. The resulting new molecular linkage of Palatinose™ is much more stable compared to that of sucrose.  

Palatinose™ has a mild, natural sweetness (approximately 50% of sucrose), without any aftertaste. It easily can be combined with other sweeteners in order to achieve any kind of sweetness profile. It replaces sucrose in a 1:1 bulking ratio.

Even at a temperature of 25 °C and relative humidity up to 85 %, Palatinose™ absorbs virtually no moisture. It is a very low hygroscopic powder.

Palatinose™ works very well in:

  • Baked goods
  • Breakfast cereals & cereal bars
  • Dairy products
  • Frozen desserts
  • Fruit juice beverages
  • Malt beverages
  • Near water
  • Powder based drinks
