A quality lifestyle is a priority for many of today’s consumers. On one hand, consumers look for good health and weight control. On the other lies the lure of the cookie aisle, calorie-rich desserts and sauces.
Polyols are an excellent solution. They are naturally good, naturally healthful, low- to zero-calorie sweeteners. Based on starch derivatives and developed in the 1930s, they do not have the extreme sweetness of many intense sweeteners. But they can be used to thicken and texturize and often are blended with intense sweeteners for perfect results.
