1 Simple carbohydrates provide an excellent source of microbial food to rebuild or enhance the microbial ecosystem inside the soil.
2 Xylose is the only sugar that is readily absorbed into the plant via the root system, which provides an energy boost to the plants metabolism.
3 Trehalose dehydrates into a gel. After trehalose breaks down and is absorbed into the plant, plants can withstand desiccation because the internal organelles of the cell are held in place. This allows the cells to withstand destruction from the dehydration and regain their normal cellular activity after rehydration.
4 Stevioside glycoside is the compound responsible for the sweetness of the stevia plant. This substance ranges from 50-300x sweeter than sucrose, increasing the perception of sweetness in fruit or vegetables that it is applied to.
