Good To Know!
Why did it say 99.9% sugar in the box – a natural ingredient, but with the benefit of Cavatinos?
Sweet Bite only contains sugar as the only ingredient. This is because sugar, once fermented by the action of bacteria, does not need other substances to maintain its effectiveness, 99.9% natural, without preservatives or dyes.
Cavatinos VS regular sugar
CAVATINOS is a type of carbohydrate supplement that differs from the common sugar for the benefits it provides to sport horses, for the type of absorption, and for the quality of the energy it produces.
It promotes a stable energy increase for much longer and without generating insulin spikes in the body.
So this can be considered today as the revolution of sports integration!
Fermented sugar and regular sugar the same?
Let’s say that fermented grapes are wine, is it the same with regular fresh grapes?
Although they may look very similar to the eye, fermented and common sugar is very different.
In fact, nutritionally fermented sugar CAVATINOS has all the characteristics that make it a noble food and specifically suitable for training sports horses.
To make a comparison, we can think of fermented sugar as a food enriched by the action and presence of bacteria and fermentative enzymes, exactly as we find in other foods such as wine that derives from a long process starting from fresh grapes or Kefir, widely used and known for its countless benefits, obtained from normal fresh milk.
What does fermented sugar mean and how does it differ from regular sugar?
Louis Pasteur is the inventor of the term ‘fermentation.’ Scientists used it for the first time in the 19th century to define a chemical process triggered by many organisms to derive energy from sugar and carry out their vital functions ‘Breathing without oxygen,’ we might say.
With yeast fermentation, bacteria and enzymes derive energy from sugar (glucose) in the absence of oxygen through a series of more or less long and complex chemical reactions. Isomaltulose for horses, also called CAVATINOS is a carbohydrate derived from sucrose (sugar) extracted from beets.
Brown sugar, which is the most common to consume, is also sucrose. In nature, it is found in honey and sugar cane.
What is Cavatinos?
Cavatinos is an analog of Isomaltulose.
Cavatinos is a trademark of Nutricheval AB, Sweden, and this is a raw material for the production of Sweet Bite.
Through a stabilized enzymatic preparation, the sugar is converted into CAVATINOS.
Its chemical name is 6-O- -D-glucopyranosyl-D-fructofuranose. It is a disaccharide essentially composed of a molecule of glucose and another of fructose.
The difference between sugar beet sucrose and isomaltulose is the chemical bond, which makes CAVATINOS a low glycemic index carbohydrate.
How the molecules react in the body?
Unlike other carbohydrates, such as glucose and table sugar, CAVATINOS prevents insulin spikes in the body. These insulin spikes creates energy too quickly for your horse and this energy also runs out too fast.
SWEET BITE prevents these spikes, developing energy that lasts longer.
CAVATINOS (isomaltulose) undergoes a much slower digestion than any other carbohydrate, which means it will release insulin much more evenly into the blood, promoting a stable and longer lasting energy boost, making your horses training performance significantly more powerful.
How is Cavatinos good for horses?
CAVATINOS (isomaltulose) not only provides energy to your horse, it also acts as a macronutrient (carbohydrate) supplement that is valuable for your horses diet.
The advantage of using Cavatinose in replacement of other carbohydrate supplements is its gradual action, which creates energy for the body that lasts for several hours of the day, whilst other supplements release energy spikes per minute, and then this energy evaporates.
Another valuable advantage of CAVATINOS, is in cases where it is necessary to reduce fat mass.
Cavatinos (Isomaltulose) helps burn fat by activating the metabolism of adipose tissue (stored fat), mobilizing cells that will be used to continue generating energy.
Here is a list of the main benefits of CAVATINOS (isomaltulose) and why this carbohydrate is so helpful for sport horses, convalescents, breeding horses, and ponies.
Help in the loss of fat mass in favor of muscle mass;
Low glycemic index;
Better absorption of other nutrients;
It produces stable energy for the body and for longer;
Slows down muscle fatigue during training;
Reduces hunger during and after physical activities;
Although it is a type of “sugar,” it does not cause tooth decay and plaque;
Regulates blood glucose levels.
