FORMULATION
Sugar Reduction
a clean
Sweep
Sweeteners replace the taste and functionality of sugar while keeping the label clean.
by Michelle Smith
T
The good health news is that Americans are consuming
nearly 20% less added sugar than they did 20 years
ago. The bad? People are still gobbling it up at levels well
above recommended amounts. The average American
consumes about 123 lbs of added sugar each year, according
to the US Department of Agriculture.
But the drop - down about 28 lbs a year from a 1999
high - shows that consumers are trying to lead more
healthful lifestyles. Anyone watching the new bakery
products coming out each week can see that reduced
sugar treats are trending. And bakeries have a variety
of options to help replace sugar with lower calorie options
that are considered clean label, including chicory
root fiber (also called inulin or oligofructose, which is a
sweeter subgroup of inulin), monk fruit, erythritol, allulose
and stevia, " the OG of sweeteners, " said Thom King,
chief executive officer and food scientist at Icon Foods.
Each has a different level of sweetness and brings its
own attributes.
" Sugar is the gold standard for taste and is highly functional
in baked goods, " said Tim Christensen, certified
master baker at Cargill. " While sugar reduction continues
to ramp up in bakery, it is possible to achieve a modest reduction
of 15% to 20% in cookies and 20% to 50% in cakes
and muffins using ingredients like stevia and soluble fibers,
with limited effect on overall product performance. "
What is the goal?
When developing a low-calorie or low-sugar product or
reducing sugar in an existing one, the first step is defining
objectives, Mr. Christensen said.
" Are you trying to make a specific sugar-reduction
claim or achieve a set amount of sugar per serving? " he
asked. " Is the goal to simply reduce sugar levels, or is calorie
reduction a concern as well? Not all sugar-reducing
ingredients also reduce calories. Are there other label
considerations, such as organic or non-GMO, that might
impact ingredient choices? How important is cost in
the solution? Answering these questions can help guide
your formulation choices. "
Formulators also must determine the target for sugar reduction,
including which claims will be made on a product.

Bakers must define their
sugar reduction goal
first before deciding how
they will achieve it.
