Key Market Trends

Xylitol Accounts For The Largest Share

The interest in xylitol has increased considerably in recent years, due to many commercial applications in different industrial sectors like food, dental related products, and pharmaceuticals.

Moreover, it also acts as hygroscopic, meaning it attracts and holds water molecules agent, thus providing desirable texture as well as mouthfeel. Cakes and biscuits for low energy supply, also aimed at diabetic subjects, can be sweetened with low levels of aspartame in combination with fructose, sorbitol, and xylitol. Sweeteners are used widely in all the applications, and its closest substitute is HFCS. The market share of other caloric sweeteners is not significant. However, their shares are rising in the forecast period due to increasing cases of obesity, diabetes, and growing health concerns among the consumers.
