Full-calorie sweeteners

Full-Calorie Sweeteners

These sweeteners all contribute metabolizable energy to the diet (4 kcal/g) and are therefore also referred to as caloric or nutritive sweeteners.

Cereal Sweeteners

Cereal sweeteners (glucose- and glucose-fructose syrups) are characterized by their nutritive and sweetener properties. They can also offer significant cost and process efficiencies to food & beverage developers, along with functional benefits.

C☆Dex® Dextrose

Derived from corn starch, C✩Dex® is known for its typical sweet, cooling taste. A multi-functional sweetener, it acts to shorten the sweetness perception and enhances the original food or beverage flavor.


SweetPure™ M Wheat & Barley Malt Syrup

Derived from the treatment of wheat starch with barley malt, SweetPure™ M is a label-friendly unrefined sweetener that is high in maltose. Characterized by a medium viscosity, mild relative sweetness and a light grainy taste and color, it is a perfect fit for bakery and cereal applications.
