TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS: Trehalose is a natural sugar. In nature it is found in plants and organisms that inhabit areas with particularly harsh climatic conditions, managing to survive precisely because of this sugar. It is obtained from starch by enzymatic hydrolysis, obtaining a powder. To the eye it appears as a white crystalline powder with a high degree of purity, odorless and with a slightly sweet taste.

ICE CREAM: Trehalose is able to give ice cream a lower sweetness content (45% of sucrose sugar) while using the same amount of product, since it has almost the same anti-freezing power and the same dry residue.

In this way it safeguards the right and identical amount of total dry residue in ice cream. It is used in desserts, jams, sauces, and toppings. It provides a smooth texture and high scoopability due to the rounded structure and small size of the ice crystals. Excellent for gourmet ice cream.

CURIOSITY: Trehalose is used industrially as a sweetener in various dietary and diabetic foods and beverages, in instant foods, in some drugs, and in toothpastes and mouthwashes. It is widely used in cosmetics especially for its protective ability against macromolecular structures of the acute and for its membrane-stabilizing power.
