Sugar alternatives Sweeteners

The delicious taste of sugar, without the guilt

Modern consumers are becoming more health-conscious and aware of the detriments and risks of high sugar consumption. They are increasingly demanding healthier alternatives, preferably without giving up the sweet taste in their foods.

Many manufacturers have turned to high intensity sweeteners (HIS) to replace sugar in their product recipes to satisfy consumers' needs for health and wellness, yet maintaining the indulgent eating experience.

Ingredion offers sweetness solutions and texture expertise that deliver sucrose-like taste profiles with the mouthfeel of sugar, enabling food formulators to create innovative sweet treats and beverages to delight consumers.
