Tate & Lyle has launched Sweetener-Vantage Expert Systems, a set of sweetener solution design tools, to help formulators create sugar-reduced food and drink.
Sweetener-Vantage Expert Systems includes sweetener maps and selection tools, as well as Tate & Lyle’s proprietary WikiSweet encyclopedia of formulation challenges and solutions.
WikiSweet is used by the company’s scientists to help customers select suitable sweeteners, and the whole suite of tools is aimed at making the product development process more efficient.
Tate & Lyle has also begun a three-module webinar series, Sweetener University, to educate formulators on the latest sweeteners science and trends.
“We developed the Sweetener-Vantage Expert Systems to meet high demand for accessible expert guidance and tools that simplify and expedite the product development process,” said Tate & Lyle’s senior principal scientist, Shawn Erickson.
“Through this suite of tools, Tate & Lyle shares 160 years of sweetening expertise to help formulators of all experience levels build their knowledge of the latest sweetener science, understand variations in sweetener offerings, and deepen formulation expertise.”
Jim Carr, director of global ingredient technology for sweeteners at Tate & Lyle, added: “Low- and no- calorie sweeteners are a vital tool in today’s formulation toolbox, especially with the heightened focus on developing great-tasting, healthier products with less sugar and calories.
“By sharing our product and application knowledge, we are working to help the industry create next generation products that address health challenges in society, delivering our purpose of ‘improving lives for generations’.”
