Sucromalt
AAA
Xtend sucromalt is a full-calorie natural sweetener syrup made from sucrose and maltose that had already been self-affirmed as GRAS by the company in 2004, according to Food and Drug Administration guidelines. Cargill has positioned the sweetener as a low-glycemic alternative to sugar and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), for “consumers who desire to manage their energy and blood glucose levels.� And the company is confident that the extra layer of GRAS will extend demand. http://www.foodnavigator.com/Publications/Food-Beverage-Nutrition/FoodNavigator-USA.com/Financial-Industry/FDA-GRAS-for-sucromalt-will-widen-market-appeal-says-Cargill
