Successfully reducing sugar in chocolate NPD – Barry Callebaut

12 Dec 2017 --- 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.
