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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
