DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7w4mhg/sugar_sugar) has announced the addition of the "Sugar, Sugar Substitute, and Sweetener Trends in the U.S., 4th Edition" report to their offering.
Intense focus on added sugars consumption and links to obesity, diabetes and heart disease is anticipated to motivate consumers to both reduce total consumption and switch to sweeteners perceived as more healthful, including less refined sugars, honey, coconut sugar, and natural zero calorie sweeteners. Less refined, niche sugars and sweeteners are expected to grow at the expense of commodity sugar, especially white granulated.
Despite general negative consumer sentiment related to zero calorie sweeteners, greater acceptance of their use is predicted. In part this is due to the availability of natural options, stevia and monk fruit, but also a matter of pragmatism: The growing number of Americans being diagnosed with diabetes or taking steps to prevent it will seek alternatives to sugar. Younger consumers in particular are concerned about economic and environmental sustainability when selecting sweeteners and avoidance of genetically modified foods will likely drive sweetener selection for a growing number of consumers.
