Global BioLife develops breakthrough in modified low-calorie

Post by bejoy »

Singapore eDevelopment Ltd (SeD) said that US biomedical subsidiary Global BioLife Inc has developed a breakthrough low-calorie, low glycemic index, natural, modified sugar Laetose – which has the potential to affect the world's sugar market.

Global BioLife has established a collaboration with top US candy manufacturer Quality Candy Company LLC for the development, manufacture and global distribution of Laetose.

Developed by Daryl Thompson, Global BioLife director of scientific initiatives, Laetose is a functional sugar with a 30 percent to 50 percent lower calorie-count than regular sugar, possesses low glycemic properties, and also assists in mitigating inflammatory responses.

According to a recent report by World Health Organisation (WHO), the number of obese children aged 5 to 19 rose globally more than ten-fold from 11mil in 1975 to 124mil in 2016. The WHO report said that countries should seek to reduce consumption of cheap, ultra-processed, calorie-dense nutrition-poor foods.

Studies have shown that excessive sugar consumption is the primary cause of modern diseases such as cardiovascular disease, Type-2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome and obesity. While sugar is not toxic, the human body perceives it as such and, in turn, initiates pro-inflammatory responses. Laetose could help mitigate such reactions by reducing the rate of glucose absorption throughout the body.

The market for a safe and affordable alternative to sugar is growing due to increasing awareness of health risks associated with the excessive consumption of refined sugar. Although Laetose is marketed as an alternative usable in everything from baking to cooking, and as a table top sweetener, the ultimate goal is to infuse Laetose into the multibillion-dollar beverage industry. Unlike other natural-based and artificial sweeteners widely used in beverages, Laetose's unique patent-pending formula has no aftertaste.
