  • Litesse is a water-soluble specialty carbohydrate which is manufactured from glucose. Developed and manufactured by Danisco Sweeteners, Litesse is unique in being only partially metabolized by the body. The result is that Litesse contributes only 25% of the calories of sugar, and only 11% of the calories of fats. It can also improve the mouth-feel and texture of calorie reduced foods. Litesse has been labeled as fiber in a number of countries around the world for many years.
  • Polydextrose are obtained by melting and condensation of the ingredients which consist of approximately 90 parts D-glucose, 10 parts sorbitol and up to 1 part citric acid or 0.1 part phosphoric acid.The products contain small quantities of free glucose, sorbitol, levoglucosan (1,6-anhydro-D-glucose) and citric acid and may be neutralized with any food-grade base and/or decolourized and deionized for further purification.
  • Due to its complex polymerization, polydextrose is very stable at low pH and high temperature. This is especially crucial for ingredients applied in dairy products, as these products can be both low pH and heat treated to ensure product safety during shelf life. With its low caloric value of 1kcal/g, polydextrose can also replace the bulk in reduced sugar formulations, whilst imparting only the minimum caloric load to the product.
  • Polydextrose, such as Litesse, is a low calorie bulking agent that can be used to compensate for the loss in mouthfeel in low fat dairy products. The complex, large and three-dimensional structure of polydextrose has been shown to be capable of providing a creamy mouthfeel that can mimic fat in a food system.
  • Litesse is used in confections, beverages, frozen deserts, cultured dairy products,baked goods, nutrition bars and fruit spreads and fillings. Polydextrose is commonly used as a replacement for sugar, starch, and fat in commercial cakes, candies, dessert mixes, gelatins, frozen desserts, puddings, and salad dressings.
  • Polydextrose, like other polyols, can be used as a sugar and fat replacer, and in low-calorie foods. It is also low-glycaemic, giving it good future potential in foods marketed as low on the glycaemic index.The global polydextrose market is currently around 40,000 tons and Danisco has a significant chunk of this. Its main competitor is Tate & Lyle's Sta-Lite polydextrose.
  • Overall, the benefits of permitting the use of sugar alcohols and polydextrose as food additives in certain foods are greater than the potential for laxative effects that could result from excessive consumption of these substances. Health Canada, however, considers that it is important for consumers to be made aware that sugar alcohols and/or polydextrose are added to certain foods, to recognize the names of these compounds and to be aware that excessive consumption of such foods could lead to gastro-intestinal discomfort and laxative effects.
