At ISM 2017 in Cologne, BENEO, one of the leading manufacturers in functional ingredients, is set to inspire visitors with its latest innovations in sugar-free hard candies presented in its new Sweets Collection.
The latest Sweets Collection includes a compilation of state-of-the-art sugar-free hard boiled candies that appeal to all senses with both a stunning visual appearance and great taste, thanks to BENEO’s unique sugar replacer, ISOMALT. Visitors to the stand will be able to enjoy tasting a variety of samples from BENEO’s Sweets Collection that respond to the latest consumer trends such as sensorial sensation and ethnic positioning.
Samples on offer from the Sweets Collection include the following sugar-free candies:
The world’s number one sugar replacer in sugar-free hard boiled candies from BENEO, ISOMALT, is present in all of the candies included in the Sweets Collection. Derived from beet sugar, it has a mild, sugar-like sweet taste, meaning there is plenty of room for other flavours, allowing for completely unique taste combinations to be created. BENEO’s ISOMALT has received EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) health claims for both its low glycaemic and toothfriendly characteristics. Also, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a dental health claim. Both of which open up new marketing possibilities for confectionery producers.
BENEO’s team of experts for application technology (BENEO-Technology Center), as well as for market and consumer insights, are continuously developing innovative ideas to excite and stimulate the market for sugar-free hard boiled candies, or boilings. The company is supporting partners and customers closely throughout the complete product development process.
