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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
