PLEASE NOTE: Trehalose can be a problem in the case of two different types of Clostridium difficile infection, if you are exposed to these strains and are otherwise susceptible. At the very least, any person who is suffering from a C. difficile infection should consider eliminating trehalose from their diet for the duration of the infection.
Nutritional Benefits: Its mild sweetness (nearly half as sweet as sucrose), low carcinogenicity, low hygroscopicity, high freezing point depression, high glass transition temperature and protein protection (antioxidant) properties are all of immense interest to food and pharma technologists.
Trehalose is fully caloric and after ingestion is broken down in the body to glucose, but with an even blood glucose response, making it ideally suited for products formulated to provide a natural source of energy for people with any active lifestyle. Treha™ is produced from starch by a proprietary enzymatic process developed by the Hayashibara Company, Okayama, Japan.
We recommend including Treha™ as - trehalose - in the ingredient declaration on the labels of finished foods and beverages.
A footnote is required as follows – trehalose is a source of glucose.
Manufactured by Hayashibara Company, Okayama Japan.
In The Scholarly Articles: Trehalose may have protective effects for cells and exhibits antioxidant activities. It is also a chemical chaperon and may be directly involved in cell functions including protein folding and signaling. The amount of research on the potential health benefits is overwhelming and we highly recommend this sweetener as a sugar substitute.
A general review of Trehalose research shows that it may be an essential nutrient in the prevention of many disease conditions.*
Effect of trehalose on protein structure: The solid state and solution properties impart characteristics that are responsible for the bioprotective role of trehalose.
Contradictions: A very minor group of the population may not tolerate Trehalose at small doses. Intolerance is indicated by gas, loose stools and diarrhea. Discontinue use and contact us if this is the case for you.
