Its mild sweetness (nearly half as sweet as sucrose), low carcinogenicity, low hygroscopicity, high freezing point depression, high glass transition temperature and protein protection (antioxidant) properties are all of immense interest to food and pharma technologists.
Trehalose is fully caloric and after ingestion is broken down in the body to glucose, but with an even blood glucose response, making it ideally suited for products formulated to provide a natural source of energy for people with any active lifestyle. Trehalose is produced from starch by a proprietary enzymatic process developed by the Hayashibara Company, Okayama, Japan.
We recommend including "trehalose" in the ingredient declaration on the labels of finished foods and beverages.
A footnote is required as follows – "trehalose is a source of glucose".
