Polyol Sweeteners Market Trends

ID: MRFR//6625-HCR | 90 Pages | Author: Snehal Singh| July 2024

Polyol Sweeteners Market Overview

Accelerated preference for sugar substitutes within the food & beverage sector in conjunction with the surging consumer awareness about wellness and health will enhance the demand for polyol sweeteners. Polyol sweeteners can be described as saccharide derivatives that are developed by fermenting or hydro-generating carbohydrates from a variety of bio-wastes, including corn cob, pulp & paper waste, and birch bark. Also known as sugar alcohol, these are used as “natural” ingredients in numerous applications, including cosmetics, pharmaceutical, food, and chemical and technical industries. The US market for polyol sweeteners will experience solid growth in the years ahead, thanks to the mounting consumer demand for low-calorie and healthier food items. Additionally, these have uses as a bulking agent, humectant, chemical reactant, and binder in textile, paper, and tobacco industries.

However, it is noted that excessive intake of sugar alcohols can lead to gastrointestinal symptoms, including laxative effects or gas. The unabsorbed polyol sweeteners can enter the large intestine and then bind with the water, which can result in fermentation and ultimately diarrhe a as well as flatulence. Therefore, consumers are hesitant to use sugar alcohols in place of natural sugars in their foods, which can be a significant challenge for the brands active in the global market.

The expansion of the market size in the Asia Pacific has been surging at a phenomenal pace, given the rising purchasing prowess of the people and rising intake of sugar-free pharmaceutical items as well as nutritional supplements. This can be a massive opportunity for international brands in the future. Also, the heightened number of chronic disorders like diabetes coupled with the surging health consciousness among people and their increasing preference for low-calorie sweeteners can further be opportune for the global industry.
