SWEETIS™ DS500 sweetener

Introducing a next generation solution to your toughest sweetness challenges. Just another innovative answer from Ingredion.

With sugar increasingly coming under attack in many markets for health reasons, consumers are looking for ways to reduce their sugar intake without losing the sweet taste they love. Food and beverage companies need help to innovate and stay ahead of the competition, without adding to cost pressures.

Why is sugar a problem?

Sugar reduction is high on the agendas of today’s consumers, with excessive consumption being blamed for a range of health issues. With the World Health Organisation calling on people to restrict their sugar intake to no more than 10 percent of daily calories, governments around the world are taking action to reduce sugar in everyday eating. Food and beverage companies have a real opportunity to offer healthier, reduced sugar alternatives.
