No Sugar Coating – A Practical Approach to Delivering Sweet Flavor
Blending culinary and food science techniques, our two speakers will discuss different approaches to reducing or replacing sugar in formulations with nonnutritive sweeteners, naturally occurring sugars, fibers, and flavor enhancers through the lens of a product developer. Focusing on formulation creation and ingredient identification, they will dive into the importance of flavor building and formula modification from a culinary and gold standard perspective. Also, learn to go beyond the usual adjustments to match texture, mouthfeel, and taste. Finally, they will examine the scale-up and commercialization of formulas to maintain optimal flavor delivery in end products.
