Sweeteners

Understanding Sweeteners

90% of consumers say taste is their top purchase motivator.

Our portfolio of sweetening solutions can help to reduce sugar without sacrificing the sweetness that consumer’s enjoy. Many of our sweetening solutions offer more sweetness than sugar — and often none or only a fraction of the calories — so you can use less to achieve the same level of sweetness. Replacing sugar can also affect mouthfeel, bulk, texture, browning, and more, so the greatest challenge often lies in delivering a satisfying sensory experience consumers know and love.

Today Tate & Lyle has the widest sweetener portfolio in the industry. It is this in combination with our deep application expertise that enables us to create the right sweetness solution for our customers all over the world.

DEXSTAR® Agglomerated Dextrose

EXSTAR® Agglomerated Dextrose is ideal as a bulking agent for high intensity sweeteners.

Offering selected dextrose equivalent and sugar composition, our liquid and dry sweeteners are ideal for use in bakery applications. Adding bulk, body and optimum sweetness to cakes, biscuits and pastries, our sweeteners also have fermentable and control rheological properties, so can also boost the browning reaction of crusts and biscuits when controlled colour development is needed.

From soft drinks to juice drinks and isotonic water, our portfolio of sweeteners offers effectiveness and flexibility across a diverse range of beverage products. They can be used as brewing sugars, alone as a single ingredient solution or in combination with other sweeteners to reduce calories, provide intense sweetness and to reinforce fruity flavours in fruit juices, nectars and soft drinks.

Our sweeteners can be used to add sweetness to coatings and can contribute to the gloss and sheen of your breakfast cereal range.

From boiled sweets, caramels, jellies and gums to marshmallows, chewing gum, fondant, marzipan and fillings, our diverse range of sweeteners are ideal for use in confectionery. Our fructose and glucose syrups enhance fruity flavours and improve chewiness in hard-boiled sweets, gums, jellies and liquorice.

Our nutritive and non-nutritive sweeteners are ideal for use in your ice cream, desserts, yoghurt and fermented dairy products. Enhancing scoopability and sweetness in ice cream, they improve softness and re-crystallisation rates in creamy or delicate fruit flavours, and can also be used to give yoghurts a great taste, and improved mouthfeel. Sucralose is the ideal ingredient for puddings and custards, helping to create low calorie versions of consumer favourites without impacting taste or sweetness.

Our sweetening ingredients offer cost effective solutions in your soups, sauces and dressings applications, and can also be used with a combination of other ingredients for their bulking properties.

Providing a range of binding characteristics, our sweetening ingredients can improve chewiness and sweetness in your cereal bars and are also very effective in helping improve sweetness levels in low-calorie and low-sugar snack bar alternatives.
