Sugar substitute products regulate the sugar intake by consumers and hence, play an important role in the health and well-being of an individual. Potential benefits of consuming these substitutes are highly valuable for all stake holders involved. However, various types and specific characteristics of each type restrict the applicability of these products in a generic manner. In-depth research on these components over the years have resulted in innovating successful formulations for each application and commercializing these.
High intensity sweeteners (HIS) are sugar substitutes that have high relative sweetness compared to sugar. HIS are high potent sweeteners and hence, a small quantity would be needed to impart sweetness to food and beverages as compared to sugar. Examples of HIS are aspartame, sucralose, stevia, cyclamte, saccharin, and others. NutraSweet Company paved the way for use of alternate HIS sweeteners by commercializing it’s HIS aspartame. HIS are intense sweeteners, and hence low volumes are required to sweeten certain products. This enables companies to cut logistics and storage costs.
