As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Sugar Substitutes Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025,” the global sugar substitutes market size reached US$ 15.7 Billion in 2019. Sugar substitutes are chemical or plant-based substances that replicate the taste of sugar. They are non-nutritive, high-intensity sweeteners, which are utilized for sweetening or enhancing the flavor of different food products and beverages, such as jellies, candies, puddings, canned food, baked goods, dairy products, soft drinks and powdered drink mixes. They are around 200 times sweeter than sugar and can help in weight loss, promoting dental health and maintaining the blood sugar levels.
Global Sugar Substitutes Market Trends:
Rapid urbanization, sedentary lifestyles and the increasing consumption of sugar-loaded products are resulting in the growing prevalence of obesity and other chronic diseases across the globe. As a result, individuals are making healthier choices and gravitating towards low-calorie products, which in turn is strengthening the sugar substitutes market growth. Apart from this, as the consumption of sugar results in tooth decay since the bacteria present in dental plaque metabolize sugar and release acid that can damage the teeth enamel, the demand for sugar substitutes is escalating worldwide. This can also be accredited to the dental benefits offered by sugar substitutes like stevia and their assistance in hindering the formation of plaque.
