– Definition of High-purity Maltulose
High-purity maltulose is an isomer of maltose, a disaccharide in which glucose and fructose have α-1,4 bonds.
High-purity maltulose is a rare sugar in nature that is present in trace amounts in honey and beer.
The sweetness is about 40-50% of sugar.
Leucrose : C12H22O11＝342. A kind of disaccharide.
It consists of one molecule of D-glucose and D-fructose, and has a structure in which pyranose-type D-glucose is bound to pyranose-type D-fructose by α-1 and 5-glycosidic bonds.
– Major Physiological Function of High-purity Maltulose
Better sweetness than Maltose
Prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases
Hepatic fat production inhibitory effect
Health functional materials in food and pharmaceutical
