MD Food Ingredients has developed a commercial process to prepare 24 from lactose and is initiating a GRA.S affirmation petition on it for general use in foods and beverages. d-Tagatose is claimed to exhibit a clean sweet taste, with Pw = 0.5. In rigorous studies, d-tagatose was estimated by MD Food Ingredient scientists to exhibit a bioavailable calorie content of 2.0 Cal/g.

sociates at Proctor & Gamble described another series of sugar MNSs that also appear to have 0 Cal/g bioavailable calorie content (111). They referred to these new sugar MNSs as the 5-C-(hydroxymethyl)hexoses. The preferred compound in the Mazur series of compounds is 26, which is prepared in three steps from lactose. Sugar MNS 26 is claimed to exhibit a clean sweetness, a Pw of 0.5, and it is not fermented at all by human fecal bacteria. Further, it is claimed to function well as a sugar replacement in a broad range of food products.
