Ingredion Inc., a leading global provider of ingredient solutions to diversified industries, introduced its new Dulcent aspartame, sucralose and acesulfame potassium (Ace-K) sweeteners at the this year’s IFT show in July in Chicago.
“New Dulcent aspartame, sucralose and Ace-K products provide a wide range of functionality and sweetness profiles to meet a broad range of foods and beverages needs,” said Nate Yates, sweeteners business director. “These high potency sweeteners allow formulators to select just the right non-nutritive sweetener for their application, and they give procurement managers a new source from a trusted ingredient supplier.”
Primary applications for the new high potency sweeteners include beverages, confectionery, dairy – especially yogurt and ice cream – and bakery.
Dulcent high potency sweeteners are part of Ingredion’s Dial-In Sweetness Technology. Dial-In technology encompasses a combination of physical, chemical and sensory data, with formulations experience and process understanding that Ingredion experts use to help formulators quickly achieve just the right sweetness profile and product functionality in their foods and beverages. It’s Ingredion’s proprietary approach to optimizing sweetness, taste and functional performance, helping to reduce trial and error and time to market.
Dial-In Sweetness leverages Ingredion’s diverse portfolio of ingredients – corn sweeteners, polyols, Enliten stevia and, now, Dulcent high potency sweeteners – and solutions to help manufacturers cut time and cost from new product development while improving product likeability.
