Sugar Reduction

From development to market, Cargill can help you reach your sugar reduction goals. 

Increase your label claimsAfter an increase in added sugar consumption, consumers are now tempering their love for sugary foods in response to global recommendations to limit calories from added sugars.1 In fact, a recent study found that 52% of respondents said they were trying to limit or avoid sugars in general.2

This significant shift is further influenced by a variety of factors:

  • Lifestyle trends focused on healthier lifestyles and “cleaner” eating
  • Media and healthcare messaging linking excessive sugar consumption to obesity and health concerns
  • Regulatory mandates, including the upcoming Nutrition Facts label changes, dietary guidelines and local sugar taxes

As a global innovator in sugar-reduction solutions, Cargill can help you successfully meet growing demand and stay ahead of labeling requirements.
