- High solubility and bring out clear & transparent solution.
- Depress freezing point.
- In addition, can be used as sugar substitute at lower quantities due to its sweetness level.
- “Reduced sugar”, “light and low sugar” claims may be made, as well as claims relating to reduced postprandial response when compared to glucose or sucrose.
- May also be used in “Low GI” applications because it does not cause an increase in blood sugar / insulin levels and offers a longer lasting source of energy.
- Enhanced mineral balance and iron absorption.
- DIT (dietary induced Thermogenesis): fructose has a higher thermogenic effect when compared with glucose, so that the body has a higher energy expenditure in order to metabolize fructose.
