Key Market Trends

Stevia Sugar Substitute holds the Largest Market Share

The rates of obesity and type 2 diabetes are high in Brazil leading the government to take actions to restrict sugar intake, and stevia is considered as “number one priority ingredient”. Owing to the high plea for natural and organic food products, the food processing companies are incorporating natural food ingredients in their products. In Brazil, stevia is used extensively by food industries as it can be used in low dosage in beverages, hard candies, and cereals. For instance, Tate & Lyle, a global key player of the sweetener market collaborating with Sweet Green Fields have launched Label-friendly, ‘natural flavor’ glycosylated stevia extract in Brazil. The product is cheaper and blends easily with other ingredients.
