Abstract

Abstract The range of low-calorie intense sweeteners available to food and drinks manufacturers is expanding. The demand for such products is also growing as manufactures respond to the market for ‘diet’ products. Intense sweeteners avoid the problems of cariogenicity and other health risks associated with caloric sweeteners such as sucrose. Although safety issues have preoccupied the sweetener industry for many years, a new range of safe, effective sweeteners is now becoming available.
