Stevia for Dairy
Formulate for sweet success with Stevia leaf extracts
While dairy is still behind in terms of sugar reduction active versus more traditionally strong sugar-reduced categories such as soft drinks, reduction of sugars continues to make further inroads in dairy products as well. The increased focus is driven by a greater importance attached to health & wellbeing spurred by the pandemic, and sugar taxes and front of pack labelling schemes focusing attention on the nutritional profile and sugar content of products.
Non-surprisingly, stevia is a rising star in the sweetener space, as it’s especially well-perceived among younger shoppers* and it provides dairy manufacturers a label-friendly, zero calorie option.
