Abstract: front page image
(EN)Products that are sugar-free, or are low in sugar (or low in artificial sweeteners), are disclosed herein that comprise extracts from the leaves of the Erythroxylum plant, and one or more plant products, such as cocoa powder, wherein the perceived bitterness of the plant product(s) is reduced. Extracts from other plants, such as Hibiscus and Valerian root, can be used to reduce perceived bitterness. The Figure shows brain scans of humans exposed to sugar (left), or cocaine (right).
(FR)L'invention concerne des produits sans sucre, ou à faible teneur en sucre (ou à faible teneur en édulcorants artificiels), contenant des extraits issus de feuilles de la plante Erythroxylum, et un ou plusieurs produits végétaux, tel que la poudre de cacao, l'amertume perçue du/des produit(s) végétal/végétaux étant réduite. Des extraits d'autres plantes, telles que l'hibiscus et la racine de valériane, peuvent être utilisés pour réduire l'amertume perçue. La figure illustre des balayages du cerveau d'êtres humains exposés au sucre (gauche), ou à la cocaïne (doite).
