The Next New Sweetener: XtendŽ
Cargill calls it, "A Sweetness
Solution for Healthful Living." We
say, "get ready to scrutinize your
labels when you see the words XtendŽ
The new sweetener is created
by a "proprietary" enzymatic process
converting sucrose (we think from
sugar cane) and maltose (we think
from malt) into a less glycemic
sweetener. Cargill is taking full
aim at destroying HFCS (high
fructose corn syrup). Don't be
mistaken. This product is a caloric
sweetener, not a non-caloric
sweetener (like xylitol). Copied
from Cargill's website:
"XtendŽ otherwise known as
Sucromalt, offers a solution for a
new generation of food products. The
sweetener is a full calorie, low
glycemic sweetener that is ideal for
use in foods where a balanced energy
or blunt glucose response is
desired. Sucromalt has a lower
glycemic response than sugar and
glucose. It is 70% as sweet as
sugar. Features natural sweetness of
sugar. Fully digestible, sustained
energy carbohydrate. Lower glycemic
response than sugar. Ideal for use
in foods and beverages where
extended energy is desired.
Applicable to beverages and bars,
dairy and ice cream, jams and
jellies, convenience foods, snacks
and cereals, and yogurts."
Cargill's angle is that Sucromalt
breaks down much slower in the body,
so that there is less blood sugar
ebb and flow. However, there are
many questions left unanswered. Here
is what they did not say in their
white paper (or respond upon
follow-up) that was recently made
available to health professionals:
- Is it a natural sustance or
considered a chemical after it
is enzymatically processed?
- What is the glycemic load?
Cargill lauds its glycemix
index, but most nutritional
experts consider glycemic load
the gold standard for glycemic
- What are the sources of the
sweetener (we suspect sugar cane
and malt, but also could be
- Were the few studies
referenced (several tiny human
and one rat) independent or
funded by Cargill?
In our opinion, treat this
sweetener the same way we recommend
treating a new medication...wait at
least two years for everything to
