Sugar reduction

Today’s health-conscious consumers are searching for the same sweetness and texture experience they love in products that contain less sugar and fewer calories.

Sugar reduction is a macro-trend across the globe. Shoppers are looking for low-sugar juice drinks that are still delicious and refreshing, moist, chewy cookies that cut down the calories, and creamy indulgent ice creams without all the guilt. 

All the taste and texture – without all the sugar

Consumers want reduced sugar and calorie products that still give them the indulgent, comforting eating experience they associate with their favourite treats. To achieve the perfect combination of taste, texture and healthier appeal, it takes more than simply replacing sugar with sweeteners.

When you work with Ingredion, you’ll benefit from our formulation expertise and range of sweeteners and texturisers, to create a low-sugar product that ticks all the right boxes. You can offer just the right amount of sweetness, with less sugar and fewer calories, and the same indulgent texture that consumers know and love.
