Isomaltulose , a natural and new functional oligosaccharide, which is distilled
from sugarcane and honey. It is white crystal powder, odorless with
good sweet taste. No dental caries, slower rate of hydrolysis than
sucrose’s and also can be capable of application in the clinical of
parenteral diabetes or other diseases as an energy source. Besides,
isomaltulose is a good substitute for special populations which
should be carefully chose the sweetener.
1)Isomaltulose has good stability and security
It has very stable structure and strong chemical inertness, so it
can maintain original state under the conditions of acidic or
alkaline. Isomaltulose will not be digested by saliva, gastric acid
and pancreatic juice, but slowly hydrolyzed into glucose and
fructose by sucrose--isomaltase until arriving the small intestine
and is completely absorbed by intestinal villi, without any food
safety problems. Usually, it will cause diarrhea eating 30g of
sugar alcohol one time, but completely not for eating 80g of
In other countries, isomaltulose has been considered as the GRAS
and used in various food; In China, it has been approved using in
candy, bread, cakes, biscuits, drinks, frozen drinks, liqueur, jam
and so on according to production requirement.
Isomaltulose has a pure sweetness similar to the high purity
sucrose and its initially taste buds is faster than sucrose’s.
Besides, its sweetness is 42% of sucrose, gentle and meticulous,
having no bad taste during and after being eaten. And it has pure
sweet at various temperatures, does not change.
3)Not Makes bad odors
Isomaltulose is most likely to be felt by the taste buds, and not
be decomposed by adriamycin of saliva in the oral cavity,
therefore, it does not generate undesirable odors, sweetness pure.
4)Bing friendly to tooth
Isomaltulose can not be utilized by the microorganisms causing oral
cavities,l and not produce insoluble polydextrose, so the dental
plaque is not formed, without resulting in tooth decay and
periodontal disease problems.
5) Best choice of new health and sports food
Isomaltulose can be decomposed into glucose and fructose, but it is
very slowly, which will not cause significantly higher blood sugar
for diabetics. And it releases balanced energy in the human body,
so it is very suitable for sports drink as sweetener, sugar-free
foods, sugar-free medicines and healthcare products and so on.
6) Having special brain function
Blood glucose and insulin concentrations rapidly up or down, which
will affect the stability of body’s functioning and mental
state.However, after intaking isomaltulose, blood glucose and
insulin concentrations only improved 10-20%, and remain in this
state for a long time. In addition, it can continue to supply a
certain glucose. So intaking isomaltulose helps to stabilize body
function and mental state, reflecting the special brain functions.

Isomaltulose is a natural disaccharide, present in sugar cane (vegan) and aldo
in honey, and it is completely digested and absorbed by digestive
system. For this reason it is considered safe, so it may not be
cause for gastrointestinal problems, as diarrhea or nausea. This
situation may occur if the subject suffers from an enzymatic
deficiencies, or if he is fructose intolerant. Moreover, even if
it’s produced using bacterial fermentation, it doesn’t contain
bacterial substances that can cause health problems.
Isomaltulose and foods
Isomaltulose is naturally present in honey and sugar cane. It is
used by food and supplements industries to realize energy drinks
and artificial sweeteners. It can be also found in:
