Market Trends
Increasingly, the end-user (product manufacturer) prefers to blend sweeteners. This is being done by combining intense (high-intensity) sweeteners with other intense sweeteners, as well as with sugars. Through these combinations, the user can take advantage of the sweetness synergy, enhance the overall product taste, reduce the quantity used and save on the cost of the formulation.
