Actilight® is an ideal sugar substitute with a caloric value of 2 kcal/g and a sweetening power of 30% compared to sucrose.
The management of sugars and energy intake is easier with Actilight®. For example, the replacement of 45% of the sucrose content in chocolate mousse with Actilight® allows to design a sugar reduced product with no difference in texture and sensory value compared to the reference. The total substitution of sucrose in a cake with Actilight® is also successful with no difference in firmness, elasticity, colour and taste profile, allowing a sugar-free claim.
Actilight® is not digested in the small intestine and therefore does not increase blood glucose and insulin. This makes Actilight® perfectly suitable for diabetics foods.
