Consumers increasingly want foods and beverages with less sugar, fewer calories, and added health benefits. New and emerging ingredients, such as soluble corn fibre and next generation stevia, are helping brands to meet this demand without compromising on taste or texture. Fibre enriched products are particularly in demand, with dietary fibres providing a host of health benefits, including weight management, cholesterol reduction and keeping blood glucose levels healthy.
