Intense Sweeteners: Market, Technical and Regulatory Insights

"The emergence of plant-derived stevia as a new intense sweetener in North America and the EU has been of key interest in the market as consumers seek out more ‘natural’ ingredient alternatives. Despite the interest in stevia, its share of the market remains small to date. Although sales of various stevia-based sweeteners have not yet lived up to some of the more optimistic forecasts initially made, new varieties are coming to market, which suggests that future growth in demand remains possible." - Laura Jones, Mintel Global Food Science Analyst.
