A natural flavouring that “builds back” sweetness in reduced sugar products is now available from Kerry.

TasteSense offered the taste and mouthfeel that sugar delivers, without the negative labelling impact, it said.

Allowing for a 30% sugar reduction, it was suitable for use in all food or beverage categories where a flavour can be used – including beverages, yogurt, ice cream, bakery items and ready meals.

Many sweeteners cannot fully deliver the lost taste, and mouthfeel of sugar – and they also bring with them undesirable off-notes and aftertastes – said Leigh Anne Vaughan, marketing director at Kerry Taste and Nutrition.

“We have developed TasteSense to address these issues,”​ she added.
