Key Market Trends

Dairy Segment Has The Major Application Of Sweetener

By incorporating sweeteners in dairy and frozen products, one can easily  reduce added sugars and lower calories, making them even more attractive to label-reading consumers. There is an increasing awareness among consumers to closely pay attention to the level and types of sweeteners being employed in such products. Thus, it has become more important for food manufacturers to provide transparent information regarding sweetener systems. In dairy products, functional properties of sugar include mouthfeel, taste, reduction of freezing point, and water-binding. Sugar is also a key component to the firmness of dairy products, impacting the flow and thermal characteristics (viscosity, osmolality, water mobility, freezing point depression, etc.) during and after processing.
