Reducose from Phynova
Reducose™ is an exceptional natural ingredient that comes from active compounds found in the mulberry leaf - it transforms foods and drinks with high levels of sugar or high levels of refined carbohydrates into ‘better-for-you’ products. Effectively it lowers the glycaemic index of foods and reduces blood glucose – without affecting the taste of the product, and without manufacturers having to reformulate. Phynova, the innovative British life science company, has patented the process and is now commercialising this ingredient we named "Reducose" (because it reduces glucose!). Think of it simply added to almost any food high in sugar or refined carbs.
