October 24, 2011

Up to 50% sugar reduction is possible with the company's new binding system, says Glanbia.

Glanbia Nutritionals (Fitchburg, WI) unveiled a new sugar reduction ingredient solution at the SupplySide West show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Called OptiSol 2000, the solution can serve as a alternative to lecithin and other binders in applications including chewy granola bars, baked bars, and cereal clusters.

Up to 50% sugar reduction is possible with the product, according to the company.

"OptiSol 2000 is a valuable tool for companies looking to improve the nutrition profile of their bars without loss of texture, flavor, or eating experience," said business developer for nutrition bars at Glanbia Linda Wilson. "In fact, several companies have told us that OptiSol 2000 greatly improves the overall quality of their bars while cleaning their labels and enhancing their marketing value proposition."
