About sugar taxes

We are ready to provide a wide range of suitable solutions

2017.05.2


In 2015 the World Health Organitzation made a call to countries and regulators worldwide to take action on reducing sugar consumption to prevent increase of obesity, type 2 diabetes and caries.

 
Globally there are already several relevant countries applying some sort of tax (Mexico, UK) and many other have already proposals about doing so (Brazil, Spain). In many cases it is being introduced through beverages with high sugar content. In our domestic market in Catalonia it was already introduced on 04/04/17.
 
If you are thinking about giving a more healthier alternative to your formulations, here in Productos Aditivos we can offer you all our assessment from our R&D department. Our technicians have a wide knowledge in sweetener applications and different regulations that apply to various fabrication processes.
 
Saccharin and cyclamate are historical sweeteners know for being a great choice as sugar substitutes. The combination of both results in a sweetness profile very close to sugar. Being a high intensity sweetener, low quantities are enough to obtain the desired organoleptic feedback. This helps adapting to new tendencies while also becoming more competitive.
 
We are at your disposal in case you require further information.
