Product Description
  • 100% pure trehalose, a multi-functional sugar
  • Quick-energy disaccharide naturally occurring in fungi and 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 was a sugar that not only sweetens but enhances flavor? And what if that sugar was actually good for you? Introducing trehalose (tree-UH-lowz), a sugar product 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 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.

Not practical.

Had to use a lot of it to make a difference. Not for me. Going back to stevia.

Not as sweet as sugar but works well for my taste buds and uses.

I think works well for me on cereals that I need a litte sweet than no sugar at all. Like farina and oatmeal. My hubby pours on butter and brown sugar on these things and I hate sugar even as a child hated sweetened cereals of any kind. Fought with my family over this. THey could not understand why a child would hate sugar...my dad with a huge sweet tooth benefited the most from my dislkes. He got most of my candy at Easter, Xmas, Halloween. Especially popcorn balls. (I had sensitive teeth to sweets too at age 8 and on as my baby teeth were replaced with the adult teeth which came in with what they called soft spots due to a high fever at a year old when I almost died due to whooping cough. Meanwhile I still am not a big sugar fan. This works great. It is however not as sweet as sugar for those who need that sweetness this may be expensive to use enough to get it just right. A jar on average lasts 1.5 to 3 months I use it that sparingly.
