Sugar reduction

Reduce sugar while maintaining taste and texture  

Sugar reduction is a macro trend that’s here to stay, but taste cannot be sacrificed. Deliver the unique taste and texture of juice drinks, without all the sugar. Create moist, chewy cookies or creamy indulgent ice creams without the guilt associated with full-sugar varieties. 

Today’s health-conscious consumers are searching for the same sweetness and texture they experience in products containing less sugar and fewer calories. But it takes more than sweetness to meet the growing demand for reduced-sugar products, low-sugar products and no-sugar products that deliver the perfect taste, texture and healthier appeal.

At Ingredion, we offer holistic solutions to help make your sweetness goals a reality. When you work with us, you’ll benefit from our formulation expertise and broad portfolio of in-demand sweeteners and texturisers, to create a low-sugar product that ticks all the right boxes. Through our seamless communication and collaboration, you can provide consumers their ideal level of sweetness with less sugar, fewer calories, and the same indulgent textures they know and love. 

You can achieve just-right sweetness and texture in your reduced-sugar products with our proprietary, leading-edge DIAL-IN® Technology — a rapid, robust, consumer-centric approach to product development. Our unique five-step processes — one for sweetness and one for texture — can help you cut time and cost from new product development while improving product likability. 

Plus, our Ingredion Idea Labs® innovation centres around the world offer a proven record of speed and agility in prototyping and product launches, so you can develop new products quickly — with unparalleled efficiency and cost savings.
