Consumers can enjoy a longer-term energy boost from their sports and nutrition bars without the post-boost crash common with traditional sugars. Palatinose[tm] has the same caloric value as fructose or sucrose, and a natural, sweet taste. However, it is digested more slowly, promotes fat oxidation, and has a low insulinemic response, eliminating the highs and lows in blood sugar that can trigger more snacking and overeating. And, it does not promote tooth decay! Palatinit, Olaf Weitz, 973-539-6644, ext. 306,
