Palatinit has introduced a new carbohydrate, Palatinose, generically known as isomaltulose. A disaccharide derived from sucrose, it has a 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, has filed a novel food application for Palatinose for approval in the EU. In the US, it is self-affirmed GRAS.
