Cargill’s new white paper on Xtend® sucromalt is a comprehensive response to many requests from food formulators and healthcare professionals who are looking for “better-for-you” and more versatile alternatives to common carbohydrate sweeteners. Sucromalt, novel carbohydrate syrup, has great potential because its functional properties are similar to other sweetener syrups yet it has less impact on blood glucose fluctuations after eating.
Based in part on clinical studies in healthy humans, this white paper presents evidence demonstrating that sucromalt is fully digested, well tolerated, and has a reduced impact on glycemic response compared to other sweetener syrups. Other topics include:
Consumer interest in dietary options for blood sugar management, as well as lower sugar and low-glycemic foods;
Sucromalt’s safety and regulatory status;
Studies among adults with type 2 diabetes in which products formulated with sucromalt were consumed;
Emerging areas of interest for future health benefit research with sucromalt based on preliminary findings, including satiety and mental energy.
“Xtend® sucromalt is an ideal addition to products positioned to consumers looking for reduced sugar and steadier energy delivery,” said Deborah Schulz, Xtend® sucromalt product line manager, Cargill. “We are generating a lot of interest from customers seeking to offer these benefits to consumers. Xtend® sucromalt is also appealing because it can be used in a broad array of formulations, including nutrition bars, beverages, ice cream and other dairy products, jams and jellies, puddings, gelatins and yogurts.”
