Trehalose(sweetener trehalose), also known as mycose or trehalose, is a natural alpha-linked disaccharide formed by an α,α-1,1-glucoside bond between two α-glucose units. Trehalose is nutritionally equivalent to glucose, because it is rapidly broken down into glucose by the enzyme trehalose, which is present in the brush border of the intestinal mucosa of omnivores (including humans) and herbivores.
Trehalose (sweetener trehalose) has about 45% the sweetness of sucrose at concentrations above 22%, but when the concentration is reduced, its sweetness decreases more quickly than that of sucrose, so that a 2.3% solution tastes 6.5 times less sweet as the equivalent sugar solution. It can reduce the sweetness, optimize the sweet and improve the flavor.
Suggested use: Trehalose (sweetener trehalose)can be used as a direct substitute for table sugar. Use in drinks, sprinkled onto food or simply eaten off the spoon.
