SUNMALT®-S is a high purity maltose, which is a disaccharide consisting of two glucose molecules bound with an α-1,4 linkage. SUNMALT®-S is produced by the enzymatic processing of starch. SUNMALT®-S has processing characteristics similar to sucrose.
Benefits of SUNMALT®-S:
- Prevents starch retrogradation
- Enhances flavors in food systems, which otherwise may be dominated by the sweetness of sucrose.
No regulatory petitions have been required for SUNMALT®-S, nor are there restrictions on categories of use.
