Adding functional low-calorie sweetener in cereal, such as functional oligosaccharides can effectively Improve the micro-ecological environment in the human body, which is beneficial to bifidobacteria, etc.
As the healthy low-calorie sweetener, such as soluble dietary fiber, is insulin-dependent, the addition of functional sugars in cereal production will then lead to no increase in blood sugar level. And since the calorific value of functional sugars is also very low, the high fiber low sugar cereal produced with the functional sugar is also rarely converted into fat.
With no matrix formed by caries bacteria and no coagulated bacteria, the functional sugars can be added to low sugar cereals so as to further prevent dental caries. And this makes the cereal produced with functional sugars extremely suitable for kids.
Improving blood lipid metabolism, the functional sugar added in cereal can also lower blood cholesterol and triglycerides.
As mentioned above that the functional sugars are normally insulin-dependent and will not increase the blood sugar level, the functional sugars are then of great importance for the healthy cereals as they are highly suitable for people with high blood sugar and diabetes.
Normally, to make healthy cereal for diabetics, factories will choose high-quality dietary fiber, oligosaccharides, or sugar alcohol series. Take wheat as an example, which is an important raw material for producing artificial sweeteners, common wheat only contains about 2.8% sugars (including oligosaccharides), which is extremely suitable for people with diabetes.
