THE SUGAR
A WORLDWIDE PROBLEM

In 2010, the World Health Organization (WHO) made a recommendation to reduce the consumption of sugars to less than 10% of the total energy of the diet. In 2015, following the recommendations of the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN), WHO increased this recommendation to a maximum of 5%. Additionally, it is well-known that white sugar or sucrose increases the risk of cardiovascular infections, diabetes and cancer, between other complications. Therefore, the food industry has been for years looking for healthier alternatives to the use of added sugars.

There are a number of alternative sweeteners, but in most cases they involve a variety of health problems, such as aspartame (with more than 90 known adverse physiological reactions), saccharin (withdrawn in some countries because of being suspected of causing cancer), sucralose (possible damage to internal organs and metabolic alterations), high fructose (related to obesity and diabetes).

¿Qué es Ceratonia Plus?

Healthy composition: a super-ingredient

  • Minerals: Ceratonia Plus contains Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium, useful in energetic and isotonic drinks, bars, gels and cereals.

  • d-Pinitol: A functional ingredient, ideal for use in toning drinks, helping body recovery after exercise and useful in medicinal and cosmetic preparations.

  • Carbohydrates: Ceratonia Plus is a low glycemic index sweetener for drinks and foods.

  • Polyphenols: Due to its antioxidant properties and natural preservatives, Ceratonia Plus can be used in functional foods, and also by the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.

Good for the environment

  • The carob tree is capable to fix three times more CO2 than other woody crops with only half the water requirements.

  • It is resistant to eroded soils and fires. Thus, Ceratonia Plus is perfect to reforest damaged lands.

  • Ceratonia Plus contributes to fight climate change.
