1. Place the malt syrup, water, sugar / trehalose and salt into the pot and heat them together.

2. When the pot is heated to 100°C, egg whites start to be whipped.

3. When the pot is heated to 110°C, put 100 g of syrup in the egg white and keep stirring.

4. When the pot is heated to 145°C, add the remaining syrup to the egg whites and mix well.

5. Add butter and mix well.

Sensory evaluation of Nougat

Blindly testing two types of Nougat from five aspects: color, taste and smell, organization, form and impurity. The full score is 100 points.


Evaluation results

(A is 100% trehalose group, B is sugar group)






The quality of 100% trehalose Nougat is better than the original formula Nougat.

Color: The original formula Nougat is light yellow. 100% trehalose Nougat is white in color and has better brightness.

Taste: The original formula is sweeter and somewhat sticky. 100% trehalose nougat has low sweetness and no sticky tooth feeling.

In summary, trehalose can enhance the taste and appearance of Nougat. It can replace 100% sucrose in Nougat.
