Market insight:
Sugar consumption results in the increase in overweight as it immediately increases the blood sugar. OECD, in the year 2015, has surveyed for the prevalence of overweight, including obesity among the adults, and has found it to be significantly high in Europe and North American region as compared to Asian countries. Therefore, these regions have been profoundly shifting towards sugar substitutes that are better alternatives for sugar. The global sugar substitutes market is gaining new grounds owing to the rise in obesity and diabetic levels across the world and the growth of the health-conscious population. The growing demand for naturally sweetened food items products, including functional water, confectionary items, and juices, particularly in the health-conscious consumer segment, which perceives natural substitutes as an alternative to sugar-laden foods, is crucial for the growth of the natural sugar substitutes market.

Competition Landscape:Feb 20th, 2020, Dutch company Fooditive is turning leftovers from apples and pears, along with the pieces of fruit that are unfit for supermarkets, into a chemical-free sweetener. Fooditive, founded by food scientist Moayad Abushokhedim, aims to be a natural alternative to those other sweetener options in a way that’s healthy for the planet and our own bodies. Fooditive takes third-grade apples and pears—those ones with brown spots or off colors, which wouldn’t be sold in a supermarket—from local Dutch farmers, along with some fruit scraps, and extracts the natural fructose through a fermentation process. The final result is a calorie-free sweetener without many of the concerns of both sugar and other sugar substitutes. However, one of the main challenges faced by the soft drink companies is the sweetener’s bitter and undesirable aftertaste, which the consumers have found out in the beverage brands introduced with stevia like Pepsi True and Coca-Cola Life. Innovation in this industry was consistent until last year, when Coca-Cola soft launched their new product, Coca-Cola Stevia No Sugar in New Zealand. They worked with Pure Circle—one of the most innovative producers of stevia ingredients—on Reb M, a stevia glycoside that imparts “a clean, sugar-like sweetness” with no more aftertaste. Some of the leading players will include in our report: Cargill, ADM, DuPont, Fooditive, Tate & Lyle, Whole Earth Sweetener, A & Z Food Additives, Beckmann-Kenko, BioVittoria and others.

Segmentation of Natural Sugar Substitute Market:
Natural sweeteners are categorised based on the raw materials used for extraction: plants, algae and microorganisms. Stevia, a naturally sourced plant native to South America, leads the natural sweetener segment, and its consumption tripled from 2011 to 2016. The high purity stevia leaf extract consists of at least minimum 95 percent steviol glycosides with a purity range of 80 to 99 percent, depending on purification process. It is considered as GRAS for use in food and beverage products and FDA permitted. The no-calorie stevia is considered 200 times Sweeter than sugar when used in the same concentration. Due to the growing interest of consumers in natural ingredients, the application of stevia in the food and beverage industry has been accelerating, and its uses range from fruits, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, sauces, milk Products to candy. In the past five years, approximately 10,000 new stevia-containing food and beverage products have been introduced, of which 24% are used to produce soft drinks. Cooperation and development efforts between product companies and ingredient manufacturers are critical to the introduction of new natural sweeteners (especially in the catering and nutraceutical industries) and to meet the challenges of adopting them. In addition, it is necessary to fully understand the motivations, needs and attitudes of today’s customers, which is a necessary condition for promoting product innovation in each company’s DNA.
