Resumen : Abstract: Dynamic sweetness perception of commercial food grade trehalose, sucrose solutions and their mixtures was studied for a wide range of concentrations. For Gustatory Reaction Time (GRT) concentrations ranged from 2.3 to 13.8% sucrose and up to 23.0% for trehalose. For Time Intensity (T-I) sucrose or trehalose solutions (concentration range 2.3 – 36.8%) and their combinations (23.0 and 36.8% total solids) were analyzed. Trehalose had bigger GRT along the studied range. Both sugars presented similar values for persistence and times of plateau and to maximum intensity, while a significant difference was observed in intensity and GRT at equal concentrations. Trehalose had longer persistence than sucrose in equi-sweet solutions. Overall sweetness profile of some sucrose solutions (i.e. 29.9% sucrose solution and 0.6 sucrose/trehalose ratio mixture at 36.8% total solids) were perceived as similar to mixtures of sucrose/trehalose or single trehalose solutions; which suggests the possibility of sugar replacement without completely modifying sweetness perception.
