Providing a Sweet Solution to Sugar Reduction

The story of sugar is not so sweet. Given its link to tooth decay, obesity, diabetes and an increased focus from consumers on eating healthy, sugar has fallen out of favor. According to a Global Data report, 63% of consumers are trying to limit their intake of sugar or to avoid entirely.

Still, sugar plays an important role in foods, beverages, oral care and personal care products to enhance flavour release, provide a lingering sweet note, enhance the overall product stability, and create better viscosity and mouthfeel.

A healthy and sustainable range

DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences provides a full suite of sweeteners that deliver that pleasant food experience but with fewer or no calories. Our DuPont™ Danisco® range also boosts an impressive sustainability story to appeal increased consumer interest about where ingredients are sourced, how they’re produced and how they consider the environment and the people behind them.
