Liquid Sweeteners
Our liquid sweeteners have differing levels of dry solids content, dextrose equivalent (DE) and sugar composition, allowing us to offer a wide range of flavours, structures and textures. Among the functionalities are energy source, sweetness and flavour boosting capabilities in addition to regulation of freezing/boiling points, viscosity, hydration and moisture levels as well as osmotic pressure.
Dry Sweeteners
In addition to delivering sweetness, texture and flavour, our dry sweeteners can also add nutritional value and fibre or remove carbohydrates and fats. They help products ferment, cookies brown and liquids crystalize. On top of that, they can also help control viscosity, hydration and moisture levels, as well as regulate humectancy and osmotic pressure.
Non-nutritive Sweeteners
Our non-nutritive sweeteners comprise low- to no-calorie, high intensity sweeteners that taste like sugar, yet offer health benefits and retain process stability at high temperatures, making them indispensable ingredients for baked goods.
