FoodNavigator-USA’s Sweeteners and Sugar Reduction Live Forum

FoodNavigator-USA’s Sweeteners and Sugar Reduction Live Forum

If protein is hot and fat is back, sugar is public enemy #1​. Soda taxes are gaining ground and added sugar will soon have to be listed on the Nutrition Facts panel, putting manufacturers under pressure to find alternatives.

But what’s in the sugar reduction toolbox and how label-friendly are some of the new tools, from fermented high intensity sweeteners​ to allulose and ‘enhanced’ sugar?

And if you are going to use sugar, are some varieties really better than others, or is sugar, well, sugar?​ We gather together manufacturers, formulation experts, nutritionists and market researchers to find out in this 60-minute webinar.
