Deliver the low or no sugar products 
consumers demand

Provide the unique taste and texture of juice drinks, without all the sugar. Create moist, chewy cookies or creamy indulgent ice creams without the guilt associated with full sugar varieties. Today’s health and nutrition-conscious consumers are searching for the same sweetness and texture experience they love in products that contain less sugar and fewer calories.

It takes more than sweetness to craft the reduced-sugar products your consumers will love.  At Ingredion Idea Labs™ innovation centers, you’ll find a mix of sweetness, texture and formulation expertise, and a broad portfolio of sweeteners and texturizers to ensure success. You can achieve just-right sweetness and texture in your reduced-sugar products with our rapid, robust, consumer-centric approach to product development. 

A breakthrough in sweetness. Discover BESTEVIA® Reb M stevia leaf sweetener.

Deliver sugar-like taste profiles with fewer calories and simple labels. For example, reduce sugar in your formulations while imparting a consistent clean sweet taste with our ENLITEN® Reb A stevia sweeteners, extracted from pure, high-quality stevia leaves, grown on our farms in Brazil and made possible by our patented cultivar and full control over our supply chain. To achieve even higher levels of sugar reduction try BESTEVIA™ Reb M stevia leaf sweetener. The 95% pure Reb M starts from the stevia leaf and offers significantly less bitterness and aftertaste than conventional stevia sweeteners. At Ingredion, you’ll also find the largest portfolio of non-GMO sweeteners available today.

If you are looking to bind a snack bar without glucose syup, CRYSTAL TEX 626 a tapioca based dextrin can bind ingredients together without the added sugar, creating healthier snack products. 

With both you and your consumer in mind, we can help you create innovative sweet foods and beverages.

Using our lines of starches, non-caloric sweeteners and fibres, Ingredion can help you build back the texture and mouthfeel that’s often lost when reducing sugar, helping you achieve your desired sweetness and texture parameters. Our formulation capabilities and processing experts make it all straightforward—transforming your better-for-you products into consumers’ all-time favourites.
