Utilising Natural, Scalable Sugar Alternatives and Taste Modulation Technologies to Deliver Clean-Label, Consumer-Acceptable, Taste-First Food & Beverage Products in a Low and No Sugar World

With 84% of consumers limiting the amount of sugar in their diet and 56% of consumers consuming less sugar than they did a year ago, there is mounting pressure on food & beverage brands to develop low and no sugar food and beverage products to meet growing consumer demands for natural, clean-label, better-for you products, that don’t compromise on taste or performance. Accompanied with the launch of various sugar taxes, voluntary sugar reduction targets and advertising restrictions, R&D teams & formulators alike are turning their attention to exploring novel technologies and designing clean-label sugar alternatives that provide sweetness but also enhance the nutritional value of the product.

Advancing Sugar Reduction Technologies Summit will connect R&D decision makers across food & beverage to explore next-generation, natural sugar reduction enabling technologies and ingredients. The goal will be to provide actionable insights and approaches to the community to successfully develop clean-label, taste-first, better-for-you, low and no sugar food and beverage products, that not only have enhanced nutritional value, but also deliver on consumer expectation. This event will explore future trends and changing consumer priorities, alongside technical, formulation and manufacturing considerations to inform the future of your sugar reduction R&D beyond the use of traditional sweeteners. 

If you are looking to grow in the no and low sugar, healthy eating market in 2021 and beyond, then this summit will equip you with the information and insight you need to succeed!
