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
- Special and clinical nutrition
- Sports beverages & energy drinks
