TREHA®︎

TREHA®︎

A multi-functional disaccharide with unique benefits for freshness

TREHA®︎ is high purity trehalose—a naturally occurring, not-very-sweet sugar that can be found in many foods (such as mushrooms and yeast) all over the world.
TREHA®︎ is a plant-based, GRAS-designated, Kosher & Halal-certified, non-GMO* food ingredient with the amazing natural ability to extend many aspects of freshness.
Using TREHA®︎ can help keep food looking and tasting fresh and appealing because, due to its unique molecular structure, it’s able to maintain food moisture and natural structure of proteins. TREHA®︎ is uniquely effective in promoting moisture retention, enabling it to protect foods from drying out.

*TREHA®︎ distributed in the US and Canada is a Non-GMO Project verified product.

BENEFITS

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF TREHA®︎

  • High heat and acid stability: Trehalose is stable under high temperature and low pH conditions. It does not break down into its component parts as other saccharides do.

  • Non-browning: Trehalose is non-reducing and will not brown via the Maillard reaction.

  • Low hygroscopicity (moisture attraction): Trehalose is free-flowing up to 94% relative humidity. Its low hygroscopicity allows for controlling moisture migration in various applications.

  • High glass transition temperature: Trehalose has a high glass transition temperature compared to other disaccharides. This property has unique benefits for extending the shelf-life of various food product and biomaterials.

BENEFITS OF TREHA®︎

  • Freshness benefits :
    Managing moisture in food (including donut glaze stability and stability of fillings)
    Freeze-thaw stability (less freeze thaw damage)
    Color retention (especially for processed fruits and vegetables)

  • Texture benefits :
    Unique crispiness (baked, fried and extruded snacks)
    Smooth creaminess (custards and frozen desserts)
    Extended shelf-life (texture stability of snacks and baked goods)

  • Flavor benefits :
    Off-Flavor masking (off-notes of sweeteners, amino acids, and vitamins and minerals)
    Enhanced intensity (citrus flavors and more)
    Masks odors (negative aromas of seafood and vitamins and minerals)
