Sugar reduction and specialty sweeteners

Create consumer-winning, reduced-sugar products

All of the sugar reduction solutions you need from one partner

With a continued focus on health and wellness, consumers are demanding reduced sugar options that don’t sacrifice on taste and texture. When reducing sugar, formulators must consider two important components in order to meet consumers’ taste expectations – sweetness replacement and functional build back for functionality and texture. Ingredion has the applications know-how, formulation expertise, comprehensive sugar reduction portfolio, and consumer insights to help you create market-winning reduced-sugar products quickly with just-right taste, texture and label appeal.

Effective sugar reduction requires ingredients that not only provide sugar like sweetness but also replace the bulk, and functionalities (browning, texture, freeze point depression) that sugar provides. Formulators must consider all both key components of sugar reduction in order to create consumer winning reduced sugar food and beverage products.
