A natural constituent of honey

This golden liquid made by honey bees has been used to sweeten foods long before sugar was known. And it has been associated with many good properties. Saturated with carbohydrates and sugars, it also contains isomaltulose, a slow release sugar with physiological properties that make it attractive to look for.

Slow release carbohydrate

Isomaltulose is a carbohydrate with slow release properties. Unlike typical sugars, it delivers carbohydrate energy in a more balanced and sustained way, without the high blood sugar spikes known from ‘fast’ carbohydrates. What benefits this can have, beyond counting calories, for energy management, individual performance and long-term health is astonishing and shows: Isomaltulose is not a typical sugar.

Product categories

Isomaltulose can be found in a wide variety of foods and drinks. Examples include every-day foods like breakfast cereals and cereal bars, bagels, cookies and other baked goods, dairy drinks, fruit juice and water-based drinks, as well as sports nutrition products, baby food and maternal nutrition, meal replacement products or clinical nutrition. In many products, the slow release carbohydrate isomaltulose replaces others sugars or maltodextrins for its sustained energy supply or low blood sugar effect. Also toothfriendly products have been made with isomaltulose.

Webinar: Low, sustained and slow: A Smart strategy for choosing quality carbs

A recent webinar with Mindy Hermann, hosted by Today’s Dietitian, offers an excellent opportunity to learn about isomaltulose, its unique health benefits and how it fits into the spectrum of carbohydrates. You can still access the webinar until 13th May 2021 following this link.

Review publication highlights physiological benefits

The science review of Maresch and colleagues highlights advantages of isomaltulose for blood sugar management and fat burning. And it illustrates how people can benefit from “low GI” in the dietary management of diabetes, for sports and cognitive performance, in weight management, and during pregnancy.

New publication reports greater weight loss with isomaltulose

A publication from Oxford Brookes University UK shows that carbohydrate choices matter: When individuals replaced sucrose for isomaltulose in a weight loss diet, they lost even more body weight and fat mass, linked with isomaltulose’s ability to increase fat burning.  Read the full publication here.

Additional advantage of isomaltulose for metabolic health

New publication by de Groot et al. (2020) observed: Consuming isomaltulose instead of sucrose can preserve blood vessel function in overweight adults with mildly elevated blood pressure. Linked with cardiovascular health, it adds another aspect to the advantages of isomaltulose for metabolic health. Read the full publication here.
