Make a Sweet Switch with Beneo’s Palatinose™

Get to Know Beneo

As one of Quadra’s strategic partnerships, Beneo has proven to be a leader in global scientific research and developing innovative ingredients for the food and pharma space. Keeping up with trends and consumer choices, Beneo has continued introducing ingredients that contribute to better nutrition and health. From weight and energy management to fibre enrichment and sugar reduction solutions, Beneo has been able to combine their expertise in scientific research with their ability to produce high-quality ingredients that improve the nutritional value of finished food products for consumers. 

Naturally Sourced Carbohydrate 

Beneo’s Palatinose™ (isomaltulose) is a cutting-edge naturally sourced carbohydrate derived from the sucrose of sugar beets. Its properties make it a perfect alternative to regular sugar because of its low glycemic profile. During physical activity, it allows for improved fat oxidation, which in turn prolongs crucial energy supply. It is also 100% vegan, kosher, halal, and non-GMO, making it a perfect addition to new formulations. 

Due to its molecular properties, Palatinose™ is more stable compared to that of sucrose. It is also mild and naturally sweet in flavour with no aftertaste. It can replace sucrose in a formulation on a 1:1 scale and can also be combined with other natural sweeteners to help achieve desired sweetness levels in a recipe.  

Key Benefits of Palatinose 

There are many benefits to incorporating Palatinose™ in your next food formulation. One of the ingredient’s main drivers is that it has unique properties that allow for sustained energy release. When carbohydrates are broken down in the human body, they deliver a fast energy supply that only lasts a short period. However, Beneo’s Palatinose™ does the opposite. This ingredient offers an alternative to other fast-absorbing carbohydrates by creating a steady and sustained carbohydrate energy that lasts much longer. Through its unique glucose-fructose binding, energy is therefore released slower and over time. This slow digestion process is reflected in blood glucose responses, fueling the body for longer and in a more sustained way for the human body to use. This response allows it to be a great alternative for low-glycemic diets and glucose control. Blood sugar management is a crucial aspect that consumers are concerned about. Palatinose™ provides the functionality of sweetness to be incorporated into products that require low-glucose claims. It also promotes improved metabolism through its breakdown in the body, giving it a key advantage in weight management products. Lastly, Palatinose™ supports tooth health by inhibiting fermentation from oral micro-organisms, preventing acid production that normal carbohydrates like sucrose can do to tooth enamel. 

Not All Sugars Are Alike! 

Here are just a few examples of food applications that Palatinose™ can be used in:  
  • Baked goods 
  • Breakfast cereals 
  • Cereal bars 
  • Dairy products 
  • Frozen desserts 
  • Fruit juice beverages 
  • Malt beverages 
  • Powder-based drinks 
  • Special and clinical nutrition 
  • Sports beverages & energy drinks 
  • Sugar & chocolate confectionery
