Superior Functionality

Sweetness Honeytose is 75% as sweet as Sugar. It has the same onset, peak and dissipation of sweetness as found in sugar.
Flavor Honeytose tastes just like sugar when consumed alone or added to other foods and beverages. Often described as light and clean, this property allows the accentuation of other flavours, helping to enhance flavour in products. It masks unwanted flavours
Superior Solubility Exhibits great solubility in aqueous solutions compared to sucrose. Crystalline Honeytose dissolves quickly in liquid products, which is advantageous for powdered drink mixes and also in processing of products, such as ready to drink beverages.
Superior Humectancy Adds humectancy to products. This property can be useful in all types of perforation to prevent “drying out.” As a cryprotectant (in frozen foods), Honeytose unlike sucrose and glucose prevents large ice crystals from forming during freezing, damaging and coarse & icy foods.

Bulking Honeytose has similar bulking properties as sucrose, maintaining the texture with significantly lower calories
Low-Calorie Formulations Can be used in combination with other reduced-calorie bulk ingredients and high-intensity sweeteners to achieve the overall calorie reduction. When used with high intensity sweeteners, it minimizes lingering aftertastes.
Freezing Point Depression Freezing point depression is similar to fructose and glucose.
Superior Browning Browns better than sucrose, making it ideal in applications such as baked goods in which browning is a preferred visual quality attribute for consumers.It has a similar browning effect as fructose and browns better than glucose. Superior Maillard reaction compare to sucrose and fructose.
Superior Baking Over longer whipping time, Honeytose has significantly better foaming capacity compared to sucrose. Superior crust/crumb formation and browning compared to sucrose. Superior moisture holding capacity can also provide a moist, tender texture where required over the shelf life of the finished product.
Superior Shelf Life High antioxidant activity of Honeytose helps in radical scavenging and enhances product shelf life compared to sucrose, fructose, and sweeteners. The water activity of Honeytose is lower than sucrose.
Reduced Retrograding of Starch Controls retrograding of starch for its processing and storage. While sucrose is known to decelerate retrograding of starch, it is generally avoided due to its high calorie.
Reduced Re-Crystallization Honeytose has a lower tendency to crystallize in high solid systems when compared to other sugars. This characteristic is advantageous in applications such as candies to avoid graining. Honeytose can also be used at high levels in high solids confections, fillings and toppings providing desired textural properties and good stability over shelf life.

  14. USFDA Findings - Estimated daily exposure levels are far below the maximum tolerable value of 500-600 mg/kg BW/d that has been found from human clinical studies. The LD50 value of D-psicose, 15.9-16.3 g/kg, is comparable to those of fructose (14.7 g/kg) and erythritol (15.3 g/kg) and is much higher than that of table salt (3.0 g/kg). These high LD50 values (over 15 g/kg BW) belong to the “relatively harmless” category (the lowest toxicity rating), according to a toxicity rating chart. Thus, D-psicose is classfied as an ordinary carbohydrate substance and the use of psicose in foods and beverages is not expected to pose a safety concern.
