This means the ultra rapid concentration (URC) ingredients release energy slowly into the bloodstream, which can help to keep hunger at bay and assist in controlling blood glucose levels.
Human nutrition researchers at the University of Otago in New Zealand recorded scores of below 45 for Taura's JusFruit URC Apple Strawberry and JusFruit URC Mixed Berry ingredients and ready-to-eat fruit snacks. Low GI foods must register a score of less than 55.
Peter Dehasque, chief executive of Taura Natural Ingredients, says: "Support for the GI and the benefits of a low-GI diet is growing fast in nutrition and regulatory circles, and it's a great time for food manufacturers to get on board and start adding fruit to their products to take advantage of this. With their high fructose content, many of Taura's URC ingredients can help manufacturers ride this wave of opportunity."
