Isomaltulose Powder

Isomaltulose Powder

Isomaltulose, or 6-O-α-D-glucopyranose-D-fructose, is a crystalline reducing disaccharide formed by the α-1,6 glycosidic bond of glucose and fructose. The molecular formula is C12H22O11•H2O. Isomaltulose crystals contain 1 molecule of water, orthorhombic crystals, and their appearance is similar to white sugar.

It is a low GI sugar does not cause a rapid increase in blood sugar and insulin levels, and can provide the human body with more stable energy for a longer period of time.

Isomaltulose Powder Applications

Sports nutrition foods, low GI foods, diet foods, dental foods, brain foods, beverages, etc.

Isomaltulose Powder FUNCTION

  • The calories are the same as sucrose, 4 Kcal/g.

  • Slow metabolism. When isomaltulose is metabolized, its hydrolysis rate is 1/5 ~ 1/4 that of sucrose, and glucose is released slowly throughout the metabolic process.

  • Isomaltulose is a low GI sugar with a GI value of only 32, which has a good slow control effect on blood sugar. The blood sugar response is characterized by slow, low blood sugar levels and long duration, which can provide the human body with energy for a longer and more stable time. At the same time, the effect on insulin levels is also small.

  • It can provide energy for the human body for a long time. After consuming isomaltulose, the blood sugar level and the concentration of insulin are increased by 10-20% compared with fasting, and this state can be maintained for a long time. This can provide a certain concentration of energy source to the brain for a long time, keep the brain full of energy, and stabilize the body's function and mental state.

Isomaltulose Powder Physical Properties

Isomaltulose Powder Physical Properties

The melting point of isomaltulose powder is 122-123℃, which is lower than that of sucrose (182℃) and the reducibility is 52% of glucose. The sweetness is 42% of that of sucrose, and the sweetness characteristics are similar to that of sucrose. Normally, isomaltulose powder is non-hygroscopic. At room temperature, the solubility of isomaltulose is half of that of sucrose, and the solubility will increase as the temperature rises, reaching 85% of that of sucrose at 80℃. Isomaltulose is not easy to decompose under acidic conditions, which helps maintain isosmotic pressure. For example, the pH of sports drinks is relatively low, generally at pH 3. Adding sucrose to this type of beverage is easily decomposed into glucose and fructose, resulting in an increase in the number of osmotic active particles and disrupting the osmotic pressure balance. However, isomaltulose is not easy to decompose under acidic conditions, and it is an ideal substance to maintain isosmotic pressure balance. The thermal stability of isomaltulose is slightly worse than that of sucrose. A slight browning reaction starts at 120℃, and browning, decomposition, and polymerization appear at 140℃. Regarding its colorability, isomaltulose powder is easier to color than sucrose when heated at a high temperature for a long time, but it is not easy to color at pH 3-4. Isomaltulose is not fermented by most bacteria and yeasts. Mask the peculiar smell, balance the taste and flavor.
