Sugar & Sugar substitutes
Sugar has been an important ingredient in food for hundreds of years. Sucrose — also known as table sugar — adds flavor to everything from breakfast cereal to beverages. Sugar is much more than just a sweetener. Sugar can also be responsible for the color development in baked goods, the texture of ice cream or the shelf life in marmalades. It is not even only used in sweet products but also in savory applications improving the overall flavor profiles. Although these sweet, soluble carbohydrates have proven themselves reliable, sugar substitutes are gaining popularity in food and beverage applications. The unique properties of sugar and the many possibilities to use it make the challenge to reduce its usage even bigger.
