NutraEx Food Unveils BI-Sugar: A Revolutionary Plug & Play Sugar Inhibitor

NutraEx Food, Inc. a leading supplier of natural sweeteners, has launched BI-Sugar – a ground-breaking new plug & play sweetener solution that inhibits the digestion of sugar. 

BI-Sugar is produced by NutraEx using its patented dry-embedding technology, which bonds L-arabinose to regular sugar (sucrose) and another natural sweetener, such as stevia or monk fruit. Not only does BI-Sugar enable the reduction of calories from sucrose, but research has also shown that L-arabinose functions as a glycemic inhibitor, delaying and partially blocking the conversion of sucrose into glucose and fructose. 

This action means that replacing ordinary sugar with BI-Sugar could help to prevent the blood sugar spike typically associated with sucrose intake. In turn, this could result in longer-lasting energy and support the maintenance of a healthy weight, at a time when GLP-1 drugs such as Ozempic have elevated public discussion and awareness about the biological mechanisms that cause conditions such as obesity and diabetes.

In total, BI-Sugar offers four compelling benefits: optimal sweetness, calorie reduction, sugar blocking, and reduced costs. It is versatile and can be used across various product categories, including beverages, bakery, confectionery, dairy, and dietary supplements. BI-Sugar performs the Maillard reaction to produce delightful caramel notes, a feature that is limited in other sugar-reduction solutions. Furthermore, it is made from all natural ingredients that are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) in the US, removing any regulatory barriers to its use in food and beverage formulations. 

NutraEx will present BI-Sugar at the upcoming IFT First Expo, at Booth 3502. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample sugar cookies made with BI-Sugar in a blind taste test.

NutraEx sources L-arabinose from China-based Healtang Biotech Co. Ltd, a global leader in L-arabinose production, under an exclusive distribution agreement. The sweetener is extensively used in the Chinese food and beverage sector, where it is favored by consumers for its ability to mitigate the glycemic impact of sugar.
