    Product Detail

      Application

      D-Psicose in ice creams can reduce calories up to 60% and provides softer texture through optimal freezing point depression. D-Psicose enhances taste and flavor of ice creams and provides clean mouthfeel.
      When applied in chocolates, especially to dark or semi-dark chocolates, D-Psicose provides well balanced flavor and taste. D-Psicose masks off bitterness of cacao and provides better mouthfeel, D-Psicose enables 100% sugar replacement and chocolates made with D-Psicose can reduce calories up to 48%.
      When applied in ketchups, D-Psicose enables 57% calorie reduction and 91% sugar replacement. Studies emphasize that D-Psicose prevents deterioration of products through its low water activity which limits growth of micro-organism. High water holding capacity of D-Psicose helps products to avoid phase separation.
