Sweets Lab

Consumer tastes for Cakes, Cookies, and Confectionary have been changing dramatically over the last several years. Consumers are demanding natural sweeteners and are avoiding processed products such as Refined Sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup. In addition, as weight management becomes more important, consumers are demanding products with low glycemic values, low calories, and enhanced fiber to provide a feeling of fullness.

The freshness of the product and safety against undesirable microorganisms are also increasingly important. Consumers have an eye out for health benefits that a product (even desserts!) may provide. At Gillco, we have a wide array of ingredients that will make it easy for you to formulate a product that addresses these consumer demands.
