Polyols

Sure-fire Solutions without all the Sugar

No Sugar, No Calorie Sweetness

Our polyol sweetener solutions are another integral part of our comprehensive and holistic sweeteners portfolio. Though polyols are commonly called sugar alcohols, they are neither sugars nor alcohols, but a group of low-digestible carbohydrates derived from the hydrogenation of their sugar or syrup source. These unique sweeteners add sweetness with fewer calories than traditional sugar, but have special advantages, including adding bulk and acting as humectants in reduced-sugar foods.

Another category of effective sweetening ingredients, our polyol sweeteners help ensure uncompromising consumer-pleasing results in applications such as gums, toothpaste, mouthwash and confectionery.

Backed our global supply network and logistics infrastructure, we’ve got exactly what it takes to get you to market faster, competitively and efficiently, with globally sourced sweeteners for a reliable, flexible supply chain to meet all your business needs.

Our polyol sweeteners help to complete our unparalleled sweetener portfolio, made all the sweeter with consumer insights, sweetness expertise and an entire pantry of solutions to help you succeed in today’s marketplace.
