PORTLAND, Ore. — Demands to reduce added sugar and lighten calorie loads are at an all-time high. Increased consumption of added sugars has been linked to a decrease in intake of essential micronutrients, an increase in body weight and a higher risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Though aim is clearly directed to the food and beverage industry to reduce added sugar, it’s not a simple proposition.
To help food & beverage developers meet consumers’ desire for natural, reduced sugar foods, Steviva Ingredients has published a white paper, “Taking the Mystery Out of Sugar Reduction.” The paper provides an unbiased analysis of the variety of natural, high-intensity sweetener options there are for food manufacturers and technologists targeting a health-conscious consumer.
