ADVOCACY FOR HEALTH
Formulating great tasting foods with reduced or zero calorie sweeteners will help the world reduce sugar intake and calorie consumption. Stevia does not contribute to obesity-related conditions including heart disease, stroke, type-2 diabetes and certain types of cancer.
Icon Foods’ natural sweeteners provide the tools for developers to formulate healthy, flavorful, lower calorie foods.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states, “During the past 20 years, there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in the United States and rates remain high. More than one‐third of U.S. adults (35.7%) and approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2—19 years are obese.” CDC estimates 97 million Americans are dangerously overweight. The agency reports this is the second leading cause of preventable death following smoking.
