Isomaltulose is a natural constituent of honey and sugar cane and has a very natural sweet taste. Isomaltulose is particularly suitable as a non-cariogenic sucrose replacement and is favorable in products for diabetics and prediabetic dispositions.

Like sucrose, Isomaltulose is fully digested and provides the same caloric value of approximately 4 kcal/g. Unlike sucrose, Isomaltulose is toothfriendly and digested much slower leading not only to a low glycemic response but as well to a prolonged glucose supply. Thus, Isomaltulose is a slowly released carbohydrate that therefore provides a more sustained energy supply from food and drinks. An optimal energy supply is a topic of increasing importance in research and product development as this may play a role in health as well as for physical and mental performance.   

Isomaltulose is odorless, white, crystalline substance which contains 1 molecular water in it. When losing the water, it dose not appear crystalline shape. Isomaltulose is 42% as sweet as cane sugar and wont change with temperature. Isomaltulose can be used in beverage, candy, cake and vintage industry. Isomaltulose has the same calorie as cane sugar so that it can maintain the peak of blood sugar in a long time. Therefore, Isomaltulose is suitable for athletes and students.
