Palatinit has introduced a new carbohydrate, Palatinose, generically known as isomaltulose. A disaccharide derived from sucrose, it has a natural mild sweet taste, and like sucrose it is fully digested and therefore provides the same caloric value. But unlike sucrose, Palatinose is tooth-friendly and digested much slower, leading to a low-GI response and slow-release energy, the German company reports. Palatinose can be used in beverages, cereals and bars. Palatinit, a subsidiary of S?dzucker, Europe?s largest sugar producer, has filed a novel food application for Palatinose in Germany for approval in the EU. In the US, Palatinose is self-affirmed GRAS.

Unique CLA delivery system
PharmaNutrients has launched CLA One DG, a dual-mechanism technology that delivers CLA One as a diglyceride, suitable for use in dietary supplements and food products. CLA One DG combines the benefits of CLA One for reducing fat mass and increasing lean muscle mass with the attributes of diglyceride oil, shown to lower triglycerides (TG), reduce fat stores and increase fat burning, the company says. Until now CLA One has only been available as a free fatty acid; as a diglyceride, CLA One enhances healthy fat loss due to the positioning of the fatty acids. According to the company, this impacts fat absorption and metabolism causing fewer TGs to be formed in gut cells, releasing fewer plasma TGs into circulation and reducing the amount of fat deposited.
