Xtend® sucromalt is a slowly digestible nutritive sweetener that provides carbohydrates without the peaks and valleys in blood sugar. It is fully caloric, has a low glycemic index, and may be ideal for use in foods and beverages where a steady release of energy is desired compared to other rapidly digested nutritive sweeteners.
Produced as a syrup, Cargill's Xtend® sucromalt can be used in a variety of products, including cereal and cereal bars, trail mix, soft chews, yogurt, beverages, nutrition bars, and meal replacement bars. In some applications, Xtend® sucromalt may enable label simplification by reducing or eliminating the use of some starch and sweetener ingredients. Its binding nature works similar to corn syrup, while its compostion of approximately 50% slowly digestible higher saccharides and 50% simple sugars may enable a reduced sugar formulation.
