PreSweet™ Tagatose 1 Pound
NuNaturals introduces a new sweetener for the first time in the United States
PreSweet Tagatose is safe for diabetics because it will not raise blood sugar levels. It is also being studied for other health benefits.
One of the health benefits of PreSweet is that it is a prebiotic ingredient. Prebiotics feed probotic bacteria like acidopholis found in yogurt. Prebiotics help the good bacteria in the digestive system multiply. This improves the overall health of the digestive system and may improve the general health of the body.
PreSweet Tagatose is a naturally-occurring sweetener found in milk, fruits and vegetables. It is 92% as sweet as sugar. PreSweet is a low calorie (6 calories/serving), low GI (3 on the glycemic index), and low in carbohydrates (especially considering that many of the carbohydrates are not digested).
PreSweet is anti-hyperglycemic and great for those on weight loss programs because it will satsify your sweet tooth without adding the calories that sugar will.
Unlike sugar alcohols like Xylitol and Erythritol, PreSweet Tagatose browns like sugar. Because it brown quicker and darker than sugar, you might consider blending it with other sweeteners in cakes and cookies or reduce baking time.
While Xylitol has a unique cooling taste and Erythritol has a distinctive taste, Tagatose as a very clean, neutral taste like sugar.

PreSweet is a Prebiotic. What is a Prebiotic?
The prebiotic effect: Clinical research has shown that tagatose acts as a prebiotic. Good bacteria, like the bacteria in Yogurt, increases in the large intestine and colon after consumption. Tagatose selectively promotes the production of butyrate and lactic acid bacteria, which are essential to maintaining a healthy digestive system.
Like dietary fibers, tagatose is broken down by the gut bacteria to short chain fatty acids (SCFA). SCFA have the advantage of decreasing acidity in the large intestine and some SCFA are recognized as beneficial for a healthy epithelium in the large intestine.
The unique combination of sweetness with the prebiotic effect enables creation of great tasting products that increase the health benefits of what you are consuming.
How Does The Body Use PreSweet Tagatose?
The steps in the metabolism of tagatose are identical to those for fructose or fruit sugar but tagatose is incompletely absorbed. Only 15-20 percent of tagatose is absorbed in the small intestine.
The major part of ingested tagatose is fermented in the colon by indigenous microflora, resulting in the production of short-chain fatty acids. The short chain fatty acids(SCFA) are absorbed almost completely and metabolized.
