Sweet Times for Sugar Reduction

Mar 2017

As far as the food industry is concerned, sugar is most certainly the villain of the moment, having taken over from fat and salt as the latest major focus for health campaigning and drawing much of the blame for the world’s obesity crisis. This trend is reflected by growth for global product launch activity tracked by Innova Market Insights with a no added sugar (+17%) or low sugar (+15%) positioning in 2016 from the previous year, while sugar free positioned product launch activity stagnated. Juice & Juice Drinks was the leading sub-category in 2016 for no added sugar/sugar free/low sugar claims.


More Spice for Sauces

Things are definitely heating up for the global table sauces market. Global table sauce product launches tracked with spices & seeds flavors increased by +19% in 2016 from 2015, indicating an increasing taste for more spicy options. Authentic ethnic offerings continue to emerge in markets outside their home, along with a growing variety of chili choices to choose from.
