Cargill Health and Food Technologies (CHFT), a division of Cargill Foods, has revealed the imminent introduction of a new, unique sugar offering a variety of health benefits to consumers. Trehalose is made from cornstarch and occurs naturally in many plants and foods such as honey, lobster and yeast. A naturally occurring "better for you" sugar has half the sweetness of sucrose and is now affordable and commercially available for the food industry. It provides a good energy source and has a wide range of applications including nutrition bars, sports drinks, bakery product, ice creams and confections, explained the company.
