Tate & Lyle has expanded its sweeteners toolbox with ERYTESSE erythritol, which provides 70% of the sweetness of sucrose, a similar temporal profile, and zero calories.

Through a strategic distribution agreement with a leading supplier of erythritol, Tate & Lyle will be able to provide security of supply to meet the short- and long-term demands of its customers.

Claiming to provide a full sugar-like experience and stable in high-heat applications, ERYTESSE can be used in a range of categories including beverages, dairy, bakery, and confectionery. It can also provide bulking and mouthfeel when sucrose is reduced or removed. It can be used alone or in combination with other sweeteners such as stevia and monk fruit, said the company.

Demand for low-, no-. or reduced-sugar products continues to climb with global new product launches containing erythritol (either used on its own or in combination with other sweeteners) growing a CAGR of 22% between 2017 and 2021, according to Mintel New Product Data. 

“Consumers are increasingly switching to sugar-reduced products, so manufacturers are looking for more sweetening solutions that will help them reformulate and still deliver the taste and texture consumers will love,"​  said Abigail Storms, global head of sweeteners, Tate & Lyle.

"ERYTESSE Erythritol has a clean taste and bulking properties that make it perfect for helping manufacturers meet this demand, and as such it strengthens our existing sweetening toolbox, as well as our overall portfolio."
