Table sugar is being replaced more and more often by other sweetening agents in production processes – and for good reasons, too. Calorie-reducing sweetening in the food and healthcare industry is gaining ever greater significance – as a bargaining advantage and an argument for differentiation from the competition.
Moreover, if a sugar-free and gentle-on-the-teeth market positioning is aspired to – and further nutritional aspects, such as a favourable glycaemic index and prebiotic characteristics, are important –
then you will find the right solutions in the Sweet Ingredients programme.
