Products featuring real fruit appeal strongly to today’s health-conscious consumers, but signifi cant technical obstacles have previously limited the use of fruit-based ingredients in many products with a long shelf life. Dry product applications such as biscuits, baked goods, cereals and snacks have been especially problematic. Solutions based on URC® fruit ingredients from Taura Natural Ingredients sweep away these technical barriers and pave the way for a wide range of new products featuring fruit pieces, fl akes and pastes. These can be designed to deliver all the taste, colour and nutritional benefi ts of fruit inclusions in products with an ambient shelf life of at least 12 months.

Successfully reducing sugar in chocolate NPD – Barry Callebaut

Barry Callebaut is highlighting several solutions to reduce the sugar content in chocolate. “We try to make sure that, next to improving the nutritional profile of the chocolate, we keep it an indulgent product, because ultimately that’s what consumers are looking for,” says Sofia Popova. One of the ways to do it is to use polyols like maltitol instead of sugar. However, it can have unpleasant side effects. Therefore, Barry Callebaut believes that a better solution is to partially use polyols, but then replace the rest of the sugar with some fiber blends. These fiber blends normally come from natural sources and allow the chocolate to keep a very nice mouthfeel, taste profile and aroma, creating an indulgent taste experience.
