Palatinose™ provides your muscles and brain with a constant stream of energy over a longer period of time compared to quickly absorbed carbohydrates. It is a natural carbohydrate, found in honey, for example, and is also kind to your teeth.
It is completely broken down and absorbed by your body but at a much slower rate compared to table sugar (sucrose) and other sugars. This leads to a low glycemic and low insulinemic response. Also your blood glucose level does not fall below baseline – the dreaded sugar crash which is common with regular sugars.
With Palatinose™ energy in the form of glucose appears in your blood more slowly and for much longer as reflected by a lower but longer curve compared to that of sucrose.
With its slow but complete absorption and hydrolysis, Palatinose™ provides a constant and extended stream of energy out of its caloric value of 4kcal/g for muscles and brain. This natural source of energy lasts over a longer period of time compared to quickly absorbed carbohydrates which is ideal for activities demanding full mental and physical performance.
Support in Weight Loss and Weight Management
With a very low glycemic and low insulinemic response, Palatinose™ can help you avoid peaks and lows in blood sugar and blood insulin. This can support your efforts to reduce snacking and overeating. High insulinemic diets tend to favour fat storage and may even lead to insulin resistance and obesity. Low insulinemic diet tend could promote fat burning and lead to less intense hunger.
Palatinose is tooth friendly because oral bacteria associated with dental caries cannot use it like other sugars. The toothfriendliness of Palatinose™ has been accepted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September 2007 with a corresponding health claim in the Code of Federal Regulations.
