The growing prevalence of diseases associated with high sugar consumption has increased the demand for low- or no-calorie sweeteners. Low-calorie sweeteners contain very few calories but have a high intensity of sweetness per gram than high-calorie sweeteners such as table sugar, fruit juice concentrates, and corn syrup. They are widely used in various beverages and foods such as frozen desserts, yogurt, candies, baked goods, chewing gum, breakfast cereals, gelatins, and puddings.
Rising awareness regarding obesity and cardiovascular diseases is expected to limit the demand for fatty foods and food with added high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and sucrose, which are considered high-calorie sweeteners. This factor is anticipated to positively support the growth of high-intensity sweeteners such as stevia, aspartame, and fat replacers such as whey protein and starch.
Europe is witnessing an increased demand for cakes, pastries, bread-based products, and beverages, which is driving the demand for sweeteners. Further, increasing health-conscious population is expected to support sales of healthy food and beverages, along with healthy sweeteners in Europe.
