The first thing we should start when talking about sweeteners in the food sector is the notion that has entered the lives of each of us in recent years; “sustainability”. And then there’s “sugar,” which many of us try to avoid as much as possible. We’re all aware that when we talk about sugar, we usually mean refined and white sugars. So, what can we do to substitute the refined sugar we want to avoid? How can we ensure that it is healthy and long-lasting? Many artificial sweeteners may match our sugar needs, but the safety of these synthetic substances is debatable. Some study even suggests that it is not completely absorbed by the body. Individually, it may not be too difficult to locate refined sugar replacements for artificial sweeteners, such as dates, agave syrup, honey (if you are not vegan), and so on.
So, how will the pastry, bakery, chocolate, and confectionery sectors find sugar alternatives that are affordable, nutritious, and sustainable? This is where the fruits enter the picture. Many fruits, including apples, pears, strawberries, and apricots, that have no flavor or freshness issues but are unsold or overproduced, can be used in the sweetener industry (for more, you can check out our 5 Things You Should Know About GEO Infusion Plant).
The advantages of converting surplus fruit into a sweetener in the food industry can be listed as follows;
- Being friendly with the human body and natüre
- Developing farmers and fruit producers
- Prevention of waste
- Being completely natural
- Being affordable
- And of course it is sustainable
