Although it has the same calorific value as sucrose, Fructofin® has up to 1.8 times the sweetness of sucrose.
Much less of the ingredient is required to achieve a sweet taste, so fewer calories are consumed.
It also has a high thermogenic effect, meaning more energy is required to metabolize Fructofin® than glucose, so more calories are burned up by the body.
In studies, consumption of Fructofin® prior to eating has been demonstrated to be particularly effective at preventing hunger pangs. This satiating effect also promotes a reduction in calorie consumption during the meal itself.
Producing snacks and drinks containing Fructofin® may well help the weight-conscious and clinically obese to persevere with their calorie-controlled diets, so contributing to effective weight management.
