What is trehalose?
Trehalose is a naturally-occurring sugar with similar functionality to sucrose but with
greater stability and less sweetness. Product developers can use it either to improve existing
products or to create innovative new products. Trehalose is a non-reducing disaccharide
consisting of two glucose molecules linked α,α –1,1. It has excellent process and finished
product stability. Trehalose is a multi-functional sugar. Its mild sweetness (45% sucrose), low
carcinogenicity, low hygroscopicity, high freezing-point depression, high glass transition
temperature and protein protection properties are all of immense benefit to food technologists.
Trehalose is fully caloric, has no laxative effects and after ingestion is broken down in the body
to glucose. It has a moderate glycemic index with low insulin emic response.
