Public health authorities, health professionals, the food and drink industry, and many consumers are united in their concerns: the issue can’t be sugar-coated anymore. Many aspects of our modern lifestyle, are leading to an epidemic of ill health across the world. Escalating levels of obesity, type 2 diabetes and other non-communicable diseases, are fueled by unhealthy diets and other lifestyle factors.

One very important ingredient in this is sugar - adults and children in many countries simply consume too much. Various solutions to reduce the sugar content of food are available.

Chicory root fiber is a dietary fiber that provides natural sweetness. It enables significant sugar reduction in food products, increases fiber content and enhances taste. It is an ideal ingredient for food manufacturers looking for a natural, clean-label solution to create healthier foods with less sugar and fat, but no compromise on quality and texture.
