Replicate Full Sugar Taste & Performance

Ingredients must work in unison to successfully achieve sugar reduction targets. Explore how our flavorists and ingredient scientists collaborate to fully replicate full sugar taste and functionality across various pathways to sugar reduction.

Sweetness without Compromise

Consumers are limiting added sugars and searching for cleaner label solutions by checking labels, reducing consumption and seeking out products with positive claims. They are also more aware of sugar's potential impact on their bodies and take a more proactive approach towards health and wellness.


But while consumers are keen on reducing sugar, great taste and indulgence still play an important role in enjoyment and even have emotional benefits. ADM helps strike the right balance with the most comprehensive portfolio of sugar reduction solutions.

Sweetening solutions play a key role in reducing sugars in your products, but there are many factors you need to consider when formulating to reduce sugars. The solution must:
