of note – Sensory science addresses sugar reduction challenges
Reformulating for sugar reduction can present multiple sensory challenges.
In Leatherhead’s latest of note paper, we focus on the role that sensory science can play in successful product reformulation for the reduction and replacement of sugars. Sugar substitutes, sweeteners and sweetness enhancers are widely available. However, since sugar impacts textural properties as well as taste, identifying the optimal substitute is a case-by-case sensory challenge.
