  • 100% pure Trehalose -- multi-functional sugar

  • Quick energy disaccharide for bees, fungi & plants

  • May be used in cooking & baking to replace sugar

What if we could sweeten foods and beverages without sucrose (table sugar) and without chemical sugar substitutes (like aspartame or sucralose)? What if there were a naturally occurring sugar that not only sweetens but enhances flavor? And what if that natural sugar was actually good for you? Introducing Trehalose (Tree-UH-lowz), an all-natural sugar now available for home use for the first time since its discovery over 175 years ago. Trehalose is sweet and energizing! This multi-functional sugar is a disaccharide consisting of two glucose molecules, and when metabolized, it releases both molecules--twice the glucose other forms of stored sugar release. This translates into quick energy. Sometimes Trehalose is referred to as "mushroom sugar" because it is found in significant amounts in certain mushrooms. But the compound appears also in fungi like yeast, in seeds, in algae and in "resurrection plants"--desert plants that survive long periods of drought yet spring to life when provided moisture. As a sweetener, Trehalose does not interfere with natural flavors and does not produce a rapid rise in blood glucose seen with sucrose and other sugars. The enzyme that digests Trehalose is found primarily in the small intestine, which means it is not fully metabolized until 2 or 3 hours after digestion. This slow process may also be the key to sustained energy and endurance Trehalose appears to offer.

Trehalose Tips: For cooking and baking, replace sugar one for one with Trehalose. Because Trehalose is only about half as sweet as sugar, you may wish to replace only a portion of the sugar in your recipe with Trehalose. For instance, try 1 tablespoon of sugar to one half cup of Trehalose. Experiment until you find what works or tastes best for you. Note: Trehalose will not brown like sugar, which can be overcome by leaving some sugar in the recipe and/or by brushing the outer surface of your baked goods with a simple sugar solution.

The clear choice We use Trehalose for industrial purposes, not as a food source. It is by far less expensive than the chemical companies, and is still of very high quality. June 1, 2014
Good balance for stevia This is far less sweet than stevia and makes a perfect complement. I am still learning to bake with stevia, but using trehalose as a base made it possible to make even no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies without sugar (just a little soft, but better than anything else I've tried). Considering how much it takes to sweeten, it is very expensive. I'm trying to get my friends and family off sugar, but they say they can't afford to bake with this. March 14, 2014
too soon to tell I do not need a substitute for sugar but I am hoping that this will hydrate my cells (plump them up) the way it was suggested on other websites. I am puzzled that those claims are not made by Swanson. Too soon to tell if it works. October 21, 2013
Not that impressed with trehalose I didn't notice any sustained energy from it. It takes quite a bit to sweeten beverages, so you wind up using the container up pretty quickly, and at ten bucks a pop that's not very economical. I'm gonna stick with Kal brand stevia. Won't be reordering any trehalose. October 4, 2012
Great for hydration This stuff is great, I mix a little bit with gatorade and it's perfect for the heat or if you feel dehydrated, really seems to absorb well. April 7, 2011
Trehalose a excellent Sugar Replacement I just start using Trehalose and I believe it's a nice replacement for sugar. I mix Trehalose with Lankanto Sweetner to help lower the carbs in baked goods. Lankanto is a sugar that uses both Erythitol and Luo Han Guo, which are also two of my favorites. Anyway together these two sugars make a nice combination in bake goods, and yes I will use Trehalose again. It is a much healthier for your body in the long run, and worth the extra cost. Although I do hope the cost will go down as more people by both Trehalose and Lankanto. November 29, 2010
Good sugar substitute I'm on a constant quest for sugar substitutes. This has become my favorite. It's only 50% as sweet as sugar but I add some Stevia to make up the difference. It cooks well and so far I have not seen any gastric problems like the sugar-alcohols can cause. It's also has a low glycemic value which is a good thing too. May 20, 2010
Helped us eat less sugar! I mix this with our table sugar so we get less sugar overall. The kids haven't even noticed! Unlike the whole "sneak soy milk into the regular milk" fiasco. ;-) It's actually a little whiter than table sugar, but very similar in texture. It is definitely a bit pricey, but if it can help them get less sugar in their herbal tea or cereal, then it's worth it. May 9, 2010
pleasant surprise I preparation for my New Years diet :) I got this to cut down on sugar. When you put your finger in the jar it feels like grainulated white sugar.The taste is like sugar but less defined and less sweet. If a recipe calls for 1/2 c sugar I use 1/3 c and a couple of scoops of trehalose. The scoop is included. The sweet flavor is there but not as pronounced. No one has complained or noticed!! Every saved calorie helps!! January 1, 2010
Excellent sugar substitute This product is an excellent sugar substitute, with no after taste at all. You do need to use more of this than regular sugar, but it is worth it if you need to cut down on your sugar intake. Wish it came in a bigger bottle, however. This price from Swanson is very good, considering this product is not yet widely available everywhere, and where it is found, it is more expensive than this. July 22, 2009
