“It is sugar , but it is assembled differently so it can disassemble easily in your mouth with less going into your gastrointestinal tract,” said Nestle’s chief technology officer Stefan Catsicas. Nestle will initially use the new sugar to reduce the amounts in its confectionery lines by up to 40 percent, said Catsicas. The new sugar will be introduced in products in 2018 but more details about the product are coming next year. However, the new sugar “isn’t something that can be mixed into your coffee.” It also won’t be used to sweeten soda, the company said. Nestle is currently in the process of pursuing patents for the reformulated sugar. Enjoy the news but don’t forget the biggest source of sugar in the diet it’s soda.
