War on Sugar: The Public Enemy

More and more, health is becoming a dynamic, key driver of the food and beverage industry. Due to its over-consumption and its negative impact on health across the globe, sugar has become a public enemy over the years.

A recent consumer survey related to the pandemic was conducted by FMCG Gurus in 18 countries. Results show that weight gain and mental wellbeing are considered as leading health concerns by consumer.

A total of 32% of respondents said that they have become more conscious about their waistlines during this time due to the reduced levels of inactivity and the increase of snacking for escapism purposes.

While consumers are becoming more critical and aware of sugar content and its negative repercussions on general health, manufacturers and industries are facing new formulation challenges in compliance with the increased regulatory attention: taxes on sugar drinks, food traffic light labelling in the UK…  

Regardless of the application, to reduce sugar and calories without compromising organoleptic profile can be extremely challenging due to the highly functional sugar properties, which deliver more than sweet taste. Acacia gum has a role to play to overcome your technical formulation challenges!

Replace Sugar, Reduce Calories & Maintain Texture with Acacia Gum

Acacia gum is an all-natural solution, particularly interesting as it helps to overcome technical formulation challenges, while simultaneously meeting consumers’ expectations for natural, clean labelled products

In this way, acacia gum acts as a bulking agent building back palatability, volume, and texture. It brings body and mouthfeel and contributes to the stability of the finished product by regulating the water activity.
