Low Calorie Sugars

Low calorie sugars, like mannitol, sorbitol, tagatose, and trehalose, contribute to weight loss, which is one reason there is such a high consumer demand for them. Tagatose is a low calorie sweetener that is poorly degraded by the human body. It is considered both a prebiotic and an antiplaque agent (www.tagatose.dk). Recently, Lac. lactis has been engineered to produce tagatose by disrupting the lacC and/or lacD genes, which resulted in the production of either tagatose 6-phosphate or tagatose 1,6-diphosphate (66). Further genetic modifications resulted in the production of tagatose 1,6-diphosphate as the sole end product. Current efforts are focused on the dephosphorylation of tagatose 1,6-diphosphate and excretion of the final product, tagatose.
