2016 Sweetener Systems Conference
2016 Sweetener Systems Conference Homepage
In the U.S. as in many other countries, there has been increased focus on ingredients that sweeten products by the healthcare community, government regulators, consumers and the food industry.
Knowing that new FDA regulations will require “added sugar” to be listed on the Nutrition Facts panel of most foods by July 26, 2018 and also that significant advances are being made in sensory science and ingredient technologies, Global Food Forums® made the decision to host first Sweetener Systems Conference.
Designed for food technologists involved in product formulations (see the Program tab), the event provided updates on consumer attitudes, sugar reduction formulations, emerging technologies, nutritional aspects, sensory, regulatory and analytical issues.
With an enthusiastic audience of over 160 industry insiders for Its “maiden voyage,” the conference was a great success. Global Food Forums is currently developing another excellent program for the 2017 Sweetener Systems Conference on November 7, 2017, at the Lombard Westin, in Lombard, IL, USA.
