The Caramelization of Sugar, the Impact on Flavor

Caramelized sugar syrups and powders are natural ingredients, crafted from just sugar and water. The caramelization sugar has been performed the same way for well over one-hundred years. Sucrose is extracted from the plant, combined with water and finally heated until caramelization is complete. The caramelized sugar product is either left as a liquid or dried to a powder. In the end you have all Non-GMO ingredients used for flavor enhancements, clean label developments and more.

Natural Sugar Reduction using Caramelized Sugar

Since we know caramelized sugar is applied at low usage rates to achieve enhanced flavor profiles, the same can be done for sweet profiles as well. Using just a small amount of a caramelized sugar will enhance the taste of sweetness so you can use less total sugar. Caramelized sugar syrups and powders have successfully been used to reduce sugar in many different types of applications. In many cases, developers have reduced the use of table sugar by 30% or more using caramelized sugar.
