High intensity sweeteners (HIS), which are many times sweeter than sugar, are widely used as alternative sweeteners or sugar substitutes because they contribute only a few to no calories when added to foods and beverages. Growing concerns about obesity and health concerns such as diabetes and heart disease associated with the consumption of sugar and other caloric sweeteners have caused consumers to seek healthier alternatives, including low-calorie or zero-calorie sweeteners in foods and beverages.
Though artificial sweeteners occupy major share of the pie in high intensity sweeteners market currently, natural high intensity sweeteners are expected to register the fastest growth. Growing health concerns associated with the artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and saccharin are driving consumers’ interest in natural sweeteners. Steviol glycosides mainly drive the growth in the natural high intensity sweeteners space followed by monk fruit extract mogroside V in the near future. The growth of high intensity sweeteners in developed countries in North America and Western Europe has slowed down owing mainly to decline in soft drink consumption. But high growth in emerging regions such as Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa is expected to continue.
