Sugar reduction affects the food industry and regulatory requirements.
Demanding consumers are forcing manufacturers towards a clear direction: Sugar content must be reduced without any impact on taste or sensory properties.
Functional ingredients manufacturer Beneo has found a way of implementing sugar reduction in a high quality, nutritionally advantageous way. Stringent regulatory requirements and demand for these products are increasing, prompted by consumer concern about weight gain and health consequences. The type of reduction matters. Health-conscious consumers want to avoid chemical ingredients such as artificial sweeteners. Products of natural origin are the preferred choice.
