Palatinose™ | The Better Alternative To Common Sugars

PalatinoseTM is a naturally sourced smart carbohydrate, providing full carbohydrate energy (4kcal/g) in a more balanced way thanks to its low-glycaemic profile. By improving fat oxidation during physical activity, it prolongs energy supply. In addition, it is the first non-cariogenic carbohydrate, gentle on teeth.

PalatinoseTM (isomaltulose) is purely based on sucrose from sugar beet. It is 100 % vegan, kosher, halal and non-GMO.  It is generated through enzymatic rearrangement of the glycosidic bond between glucose and fructose from an α-1.2 linkage in sucrose to an α-1.6-glycosidic bond in PalatinoseTM .

The new molecular linkage of PalatinoseTM is more stable compared to that of sucrose.  PalatinoseTM has a mild, natural sweetness (approximately 50% of sucrose), without any aftertaste. It replaces sucrose on a 1:1 scale and can easily be combined with other sweeteners to achieve a unique and tailored sweetness profile.  PalatinoseTM is a very low hygroscopic powder. It absorbs virtually no moisture and remains stable at a temperature of 25 °C and relative humidity up to 85 %.

Perfect free-flowing powder for drinks & blends

Thanks to its low hygroscopicity, PalatinoseTM is a free-flowing powder that is perfect in powder drinks and blends. It even shows reduced water absorption in blends with other sugars and therefore significantly minimises the risk of caking and lumping.

Helps to improve the stability for beverages

PalatinoseTM has a much higher acid and process stability than sucrose, highly relevant in isotonic sports drinks that tend to have a pH <3. PalatinoseTM supports maintained osmolality helps create refreshing and rehydrating isotonic, hypo and hypertonic beverages.

Longer shelf life of glazed donuts & other bakery

Due to a difference in water activity, donut crumbs tend to dry out and the topping becomes sticky over time. This can be countered by controlling water migration between both layers. Water activity of the glaze can be adapted to resemble that of the baked good by using PalatinoseTM. This safeguards the original softness and freshness of prevents stickiness of the glazing; for freshly or packed donuts with extended shelf-life.
