ingredient information
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.
