Experience the Sweet Taste of Innovation

Bioenergy Ribose® improves Profile of Food Applications

Bioenergy Ribose is quickly gaining the attention of food manufacturers for its health benefits and energy functions. Bioenergy Ribose and its sweet taste, already popular in an array of beverages and supplements, can improve the nutritional profile and benefit claims of your food applications. Although Bioenergy Ribose is a five-carbon monosaccharide, it does not raise blood sugar, making it a good carbohydrate to use in food and beverage formulation. Discover the sweet taste of innovation with ribose by contacting us today.

Here are just a few of the benefits you can claim when adding Bioenergy Ribose to your products:

  • Dark Chocolate Truffles
    • Bioenergy Ribose’s negative glycemic index combines well with dark chocolate’s ability to help maintain healthy circulation.
  • Granola Bars

EASY TO INCORPORATE IN FOOD FORMULATIONS

  • It is easily soluble and dissolves in most food systems.
  • It is slightly sweet with no aftertaste.
  • It is stable in most pH ranges common in food, from acid, neutral, to alkaline.
  • It is a reducing sugar and participates in the browning or maillard reaction in food systems, especially upon heating.
  • It is compatible with many ingredients and systems to include:
    • other sugars, carbohydrates, fiber and sweeteners in formulations,
    • most protein-based systems,
    • fats and oils found in food, and
    • chocolates and coatings.
  • It is a simple, 5-carbon monosaccharide that lowers blood sugar.

Key Clinical Studies

D-Ribose Does Not Add to the Glycemic Load (Bioenergy Life Science, Inc.)

Bioenergy Life Science, Inc. Professional Commentary:

“If D-Ribose is a sugar, why doesn’t it raise blood sugar level?” This frequently asked question can be answered simply by replying, “Because it is a five-carbon sugar, not a six-carbon sugar.” And the difference is striking!

D-Ribose is of vital importance to many activities of the cell. It provides the backbone of the most important molecules in the body, such as ATP, the “energy currency” all cells need to function normally. Through the eons of evolution, D-Ribose has become the foundation for the molecules that produce and regulate cellular activity.

D-Ribose Reduces Fatigue in Baby Boomers: Open Label and Placebo Controlled Studies (Bioenergy Life Science, Inc., 2010)

View More

Adapted from studies sponsored by
Bioenergy Life Science, Inc., March 2010, by Raj Khankari, Ph.D.

Study Purpose:
Thirty percent (30%) of the U.S. population is comprised of individuals born between the years 1946 and 1964, the so-called “Baby Boomer” generation. Often, the daily demands of this generation limit exercise opportunities, leading to deconditioning, undesirable body mass index values and down-regulated energy production pathways. This combination of physical attributes perpetuates inactivity and contributes to the fatigue often experienced by this population.

D-Ribose, a naturally occurring pentose carbohydrate, improves the de novo synthesis and salvage of cellular energy compounds, including ATP. By stimulating the purine nucleotide pathway and contributing to a healthy cellular purine pool, D-ribose helps preserve and restore the cellular energy supply. Studies have shown that by this mechanism, D-ribose supplementation increases cellular energy, reduces fatigue, and improves heart function in patients with ischemic heart disease and/or chronic heart failure1,2; reduces muscle pain and improves quality of life in patients suffering fibromyalgia3; and in a healthy normal population, accelerates the resupply of cellular energy following high-intensity exercise, thereby relieving delayed onset muscle soreness and improving exercise performance4.
