Sugar, Sugar Substitute, and Sweetener Trends in the U.S., 3rd Edition
The U.S. sweetener market is the largest and most diverse in the world, and Americans are the heaviest consumer of sweeteners. Dozens of sweetener choices are available at the retail/consumer level and for food manufacturers, ranging from sugar and its many variations to controversy-attracting high fructose corn syrup, and from a menu of artificial sweeteners to new plant-based sweeteners that offer the advantage of being natural products. In Sugar, Sugar Substitute, and Sweetener Trends in the U.S., Packaged Facts quantifies and analyzes the size and growth of the retail market for kitchen/tabletop sugar and sweeteners, as well as tracking emerging product and marketing opportunities. The roll-out of new products containing stevia, as well as accelerated purchase of new and existing stevia products by consumers, will continue to spur market growth, while saccharin will continue to lose ground. The market will also see changes in the organic and less-refined sugar categories, including organic evaporated cane juice.
