“Better Juice’s enzymatic technology reduces sugar content in orange juices. It uses natural ingredients to convert fructose, glucose and sucrose into prebiotic dietary fibers and other non-digestible molecules. The result is a low-calorie, reduced-sugar product that has the same nutritional values and sweetness of orange juice without the use of sweeteners or other additives to replace the sugars.
The technology has been shown to reduce as much as 80% of sugars in orange juice, the company said.
Better Juice will work with GEA to construct and install the sugar reduction solution and market the system globally. Under the partnership, GEA will engineer, design, manufacture and install the bioreactor that reduces sugar, while Better Juice will produce the immobilized microorganisms used in the enzymatic process.”
