Acid production from ribose, L-arabinose, and galactose was also tested by using phenol red base medium (Difco Laboratories, Detroit, MI), supplemented with 1% (w/v) sugar, after 48 h of incubation at 37[degrees]C.
Results of both pilot and clinical studies recently showed that Phase 3 Sugar Controller, a patent-pending, proprietary combination of a specific form of L-arabinose and a patented form of chromium, significantly reduced both blood glucose and insulin responses to sucrose challenges, according to Pharmachem Laboratories, developer of the ingredient.
