As reducing sugar consumption has become a global concern, consumers are actively seeking out foods and beverages with lower sugars – but few are willing to give up the satisfaction of sweetness. Zerose® erythritol – derived via the age-old process of fermentation from corn, and with zero calories – is ideal for creating great-tasting reduced-sugars and no added sugars products. It restores much needed bulk after reducing sugars in formulations.
Thanks to its clean taste and functionality close to sucrose, Zerose® erythritol enables significant sugar reduction in a wide range of applications. Thanks to its strong cooling effect and oral health benefits it is also commonly used in dental care and gums.
Zerose® has the sweet taste and mouthfeel of sucrose…but with zero calories, enabling reduced-calorie claims that are impossible to achieve with traditional sucrose alternatives.
Erythritol does not contribute to caries or tooth decay and is proven* to significantly reduce caries and dental plaque versus other polyols.
