Looking for delicious tasting, reduced-sugar ice cream solutions?

Many ice cream manufacturers are looking for solutions to reduce sugar but are concerned with the downgrading effects lower amounts may have to the sensory properties. Valio is now introducing a valuable alternative for ice-cream manufacturers who want to produce reduced-sugar dairy products.

Today’s trend in sugar consumption

One of the most notable trends in recent years is the shift in attitudes towards sugar. Consumers are becoming more aware of the sugar content of the products they consume, to the extent where it is the most common nutritional fact weighed-in before any food purchase. The World Health Organization validates this view, recommending that children as well as adults limit their sugar consumption to a maximum of 10% of their total energy intake.

Ice cream, though a delectable treat and Sunday favourite is no exception and faces similar consideration. At the same time, consumers are sensitive to quality factors such as taste and texture, as well as the use of artificial additions. Products are expected to have the same enjoyable flavour with sugar reduced in a natural way.

“Nutritional improvements can be made while optimising processes and maximizing taste and mouthfeel”
