Ingredion Launches SWEETIS™ Systems for Customisable Sweetness Profiles

Singapore, 8 November 2016 – Ingredion introduces SWEETIS™ sweetener systems across Asia Pacific, offering food and beverage manufacturers the ability to create sucrose-like taste profiles with the mouthfeel of sugar.

With growing consumer interest in reducing sugar intake, SWEETIS™ can help manufacturers replace sugar in their product recipes to satisfy consumers’ needs for health and wellness, while maintaining an indulgent eating experience. Providing more intense sweetness, up to 120 – 130% of sucrose, and fewer calories, it allows formulations to contain up to 50 percent less sugar.

The SWEETIS™ series uses Ingredion’s proprietary DIAL-IN® Sweetness technology to shorten the path to achieve optimum sensory profiles. Easy to use with minimal formulation changes, SWEETIS™ can support on-pack claims of reduced calories and / or reduced sugar.

Dina Yeon, Sweetness Marketing Manager for Asia Pacific commented: “Reducing sugar in foods and beverages without compromising taste and texture has been an ongoing challenge for manufacturers, especially when there has been increasing consumer concern in sugar intake. With SWEETIS™ sweetener systems, manufacturers can respond to this challenge with products that taste great and are on-trend.”

From a technical perspective, SWEETIS™ sweetener systems also offer excellent flowability, and are pH and heat stable. They are manufactured at a non-GM dedicated facility that meets ISO, FSSC22000 and SMETA certifications. The facility is also Halal and Kosher certified.
