An unrivalled range of Polyols to compliment the health trend.

Sugar consumption is now a global health concern with local regulations also aligning with this directive towards healthier food products with less sugar – especially for children. While consumers become increasingly aware of the detrimental effects of excessive sugar consumption and aim to reduce their intake, few are willing to give up the satisfaction of sweetness.

Polyols (or sugar alcohols) can offer an excellent solution to this manufacturer challenge. These versatile sweeteners offer the potential for great-tasting reduced-sugar and sugar-free products, while contributing important sensory and functional benefits. Polyols can be used alone or paired with high-intensity sweeteners like stevia.
