Advocacy for Health
At Icon Foods, our strong advocacy for consumer health forms the foundation of everything we do. 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, low-calorie foods. Our dedicated R&D team maximizes synergies among sweeteners—effectively replacing sugar and decreasing operation costs. Click here to view our case studies.
Looking to the Future
The Centers for Disease Control (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 12.5 million (17%) of children and adolescents aged 2-19 years are obese.” The CDC estimates 97 million Americans are dangerously overweight. The agency reports this as the second leading cause of preventable death, following smoking. At Icon Foods, we craft sustainable sugar alternatives to help lower the risk of diabesity. Over the years, our product portfolio has expanded to include monk fruit, erythritol, allulose, custom sweetening systems, and more.
Clean Labeling Advocacy
We believe that consumer interest in clean labels is not a fad. Consumers have the right to understand the ingredients used in the foods they eat. Icon Foods specializes in the production of natural sweeteners because we believe that using and producing natural food ingredients is better for our consumers and for the environment. Since 1999, we’ve been helping food manufacturers make deep, clean cuts to added sugars naturally. We achieve this by providing food ingredients and custom sweetening systems that drive down added sugars, reduce calories, and address functionality.
