Gadot Introduces NRGylose - Low Glycemic Sweetener

05.12.2007
Gadot Biochemical Ind. (GBI), Haifa, Israel, introduces NRGylose, a tooth-friendly, slow-digesting sweetener with a low glycemic index. Since NRGylose is digested much slower than sucrose, it contributes to a prolonged glucose and energy supply.

NRGylose is a bulk-sweetener carbohydrate. Chemically known as isomaltulose, it is a disaccharide made by fermentation from refined sugar (sucrose) using a non-GMO bacterial strain.

Compared to sucrose, isomaltulose is digested much more slowly, leading to a low glycemic response while providing the same caloric value as sugar. However, this energy is spread across a longer period of time. Any increase in blood-sugar level is more moderate, and therefore any increase in insulin levels is moderate too.

“This feature makes NRGylose an essential sweetener for diabetics and pre-diabetics,” explains Ronny Hacham, VP Business Development and Marketing at Gadot. “It also has great benefit in sport nutrition. A marathon runner can maintain a constant blood-sugar level more easily with our isomaltulose.”

Isomaltulose is not readily fermented by the bacteria in our mouth and therefore prevents the creation of acids that harm tooth enamel. “Taking these significant advantages into consideration, along with its natural sweet taste, NRGylose is the perfect choice for health-conscious consumers who do not want to compromise on good taste,” notes Hacham.

Isomaltulose’s properties and nutritional benefits can be added to a wide spectrum of formulations, including energy drinks, sports and isotonic drinks, products for diabetics, candy and chocolate bars, milk drinks, yoghurts, soft-drinks and cereals.

“NRGylose is a good example of Gadot’s innovation and commitment to broaden its functional ingredient line and provide continued support to the rapidly growing functional food and beverage sector,” says Hacham. “Gadot produces an extensive range of enrichment minerals and crystalline fructose to further support the functional-health food and beverage market.”

Gadot provides ingredients for the dietary supplement, food and beverage markets. It is a world’s leading supplier of sweeteners and citrate salts, and specializes in developing products which have high bioavailability. Its daughter company, Pharmline, Inc., USA, is a global supplier and manufacturer of high-quality nutritional supplements, standardized phytonutrients and fine chemicals. Pharmline specializes in providing services to the dietary supplement and food and beverages industries.

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
