I recently found out about this sugar called "trehalose" from this article:

 

"San Francisco: Tau—Time to Shine as Therapeutic Target?"

I see that the makers of Sweet'N Low manufactures this stuff.

 

Anyone know more about this?

And here's a study on how it reduces the toxicity of the amyloid β peptide:
