TREHA Trehalose Sugar



TREHA™ trehalose is a versatile ingredient that enhances and intensifies certain flavours to bring out the best in your products.

Trehalose is a naturally occurring, multi-functional sugar with nearly half the sweetness of sucrose. It is a carbohydrate (disaccharide) that is found in nature and is present in mushrooms, baker’s yeast and honey.

  • Produced from non-GM starch using non-GM enzymes
  • May be used as part of natural flavour systems
  • Recognized as GRAS by the Flavour and Extract Manufacturers Association of the U.S. (FEMA); FEMA GRAS is recognized in Mexico; other geographies pending
  • FDA GRAS for food and beverage use in the U.S.

Why do you use Trehalose?

  • Enhances flavour in fruits, especially citrus, and highlights foods’ inherent saltiness, which can enable reduced sodium content
  • Reduces bitterness of potassium chloride in low-sodium formulations
  • Masks off-notes in both flavours and odours, including proteins, vitamins, minerals and high-intensity sweeteners
  • Protects flavour stability and quality throughout processing and shelf life

    Using Trehalose:

    TREHA™ trehalose can be incorporated into a wide variety of applications and is GRAS up to the use levels specified below. In addition, trehalose offers a range of functional benefits to improve your processes:
