All-natural flavours and delights
A sweet treat, longer shelf life or quick energy boost – natural sweeteners is an umbrella term for a group of all-natural ingredients ranging from glucose and dextrose to sugar in a wide range of types and forms.
Sweeteners are used in food production as a filler, vehicle, source of carbohydrates or preservative. The one thing they all have in common is that they can be used to sweeten an end product, although the degree of sweetness and taste nuances vary greatly.
More than sugar and sweetness
Sweet is part of the sense of taste, along with sour, bitter, umami and salt, making it an important element in a well-balanced and delicious product. However, many sweeteners offer much more than good taste. They can be used in foods as a filler, vehicle or preservative as well.
Fructose is also a good alternative if you want the same sweetness, but fewer calories.
An elegant appearance with sweetness
Sweeteners offer more than just a sweet taste. They can also add the perfect touch to the end product as an elegant decoration. Icing sugar, fondant and pearl sugar are ideal choices for creating a beautiful visual effect that gives the end product an elegant and appetising finish.
