Sweeteners

Updated: Mar 9

Sweeteners are natural or artificial compounds that add additional sweetness to the food product and beverages. There are various other uses of adding sweeteners to food products other than just taste.


They act as food preservatives in jams and jellies as the high concentration of sugars prevent the growth of bacteria.

They function as fermenters in brewing and winemaking.

When added in bakery products they help provide a better texture and retain moisture of the baked products other than giving the characteristic sweet taste.

Sweeteners are also added to the food products for caramelization or to attain that distinct caramel brown color of the product.
