AmaChol® is Nating amaranth functional carrier/ ingredient and its high quality has been confirmed by pre-clinical studies in vitro by best Italian Universities
Amarant is a pseudo cereal, considered as a “superfood” because it contains high nutraceutical values such as a high-quality protein, unsaturated oils, squalene, dietary fiber, tocopherols, phenolic compounds, flavonoids, vitamins, and minerals.
- Low glycemic index compared to maltodextrin
- Significantly inhibits the intestinal absorption of cholesterol
- Antioxidant activity thanks to quercetin and phenolic acids
- High in proteins and well balancing amino acids
- Contains omega-3 and omega-6
- Gluten free and suitable for celiac
- Produced using our DEFS® technology system that doesn’t use chemical solvents but just water and ethanol.
To supply customers with quality and effectiveness, as well as scientific innovation, Nating collaborates with Italian Universities to set up studies directly on the product.
Studies have demonstrated that as a result of digestion, AmaChol® releases less glucose than maltodextrin and does not directly raise blood glucose (glycemic index).
Furthermore, the results of studies conducted on the product show a significant reduction in insulin secretion of 63,4% by AmaChol® compared to maltodextrin.
AmaChol® significantly inhibits the intestinal absorption of cholesterol by 69% compared to maltodextrin
Thanks to its low glycemic index (GI: 35), large content of fiber and high amount of manganese, AmaChol® represents a good option for regulating sugar levels for correcting hyperglycemia as part of a healthy nutritional approach.
AmaChol® is an excellent nutraceutical choice for a healthier life and better performance for athletes, vegans, vegetarians, children and those persons that had acquired allergies, have celiac disease or need more easily digestible proteins. AmaChol® can be used as functional carrier to produce our botanical extracts or as single ingredient, to produce food supplements and food products.
