Professional Development Meeting Information
Title: Technical Breakfast- Challenges in Sugar Reduction

A cross-functional panel of beverage experts will feature four perspectives on developing reduced, low and no-sugar products at the bench top level through commercialization.

Panelists will answer questions relating to the costs associated with sugar reduction, challenges encountered when reformulating products that use less sugar, the impact of replacing or removing sugar on taste, and the limits of using certain sweeteners across markets.

In addition to gaining a better understanding of the technical and regulatory aspects of sugar reduction, attendees will have an opportunity to taste and compare products that use modern sweetener and flavor modulating technologies.
