Purpose of reviewDietary sugars play a role in noncommunicable diseases and represent a clear target for reduction. In this context, product reformulation can have a positive impact on health. Several technological solutions are available to replace sugar, all with benefits and limitations. The goal of this review is to describe the main sugar replacement alternatives and discuss their impact on health and product physicochemical properties. Recent findingsAlthough high intensity sweeteners and… Expand
The scientific basis for healthful carbohydrate profile
The objectives of this paper are to identify carbohydrates and carbohydrates sources to promote and those to limit for dietary intake and food product development, based on current knowledge about the impact of carbohydrates on the development of dental caries, obesity and cardio-metabolic disorders.

Opportunities within the Agri-food System to Encourage a Nutritionally Balanced Diet– Part II
ABSTRACT The field-to-fork concept comprises opportunities for providing consumers with nutritious and health-beneficial food in order to meet the growing interest in health-beneficial foods and toExpand
Temporal sweetness and side tastes profiles of 16 sweeteners using temporal check-all-that-apply (TCATA).
Nutritive sweeteners dextrose, fructose, maltitol, mannitol, sucrose-allulose mixture, palatinose and xylitol had the most similar temporal and qualitative taste profiles when compared to sucrose, in terms of their sweetness onset, peak sweetness citations, sweetness decay, and side taste profiles.

Modelling of the impact of universal added sugar reduction through food reformulation
Product reformulation may be a potentially useful strategy for reducing AS intake, and the magnitude of projected reduction was small at the individual level, but the impact may be meaningful at a population level. Expand
Opportunities within the Agri-food System to Encourage a Nutritionally Balanced Diet – Part I
ABSTRACT To meet their growing interest and to counteract the increase of diet-related diseases worldwide, the field-to-fork concept comprises opportunities for providing consumers with nutritiousExpand
Consumption of non-nutritive sweeteners by pre-schoolers of the food and environment Chilean cohort (FECHIC) before the implementation of the Chilean food labelling and advertising law
Before the implementation of the Food Labelling and Advertising Law, NNS consumption was highly prevalent among a cohort of low-middle income Chilean pre-schoolers and was significantly higher among children whose mothers had a high educational level compared to children whose Mothers did not complete high school.

Hypotheses and evidence related to intense sweeteners and effects on appetite and body weight changes: A scoping review of reviews
A scoping review of reviews was conducted to obtain an overview of hypotheses, research approaches and features of the evidence on intense sweeteners’ potential relationships to appetite and weight changes, finding that with few exceptions, the reviews on intensesweeteners and weight change underuse systematic methodology.

Extraction of steviol glycosides from dried Stevia rebaudiana by pressurized hot water extraction
In existing processes, the extraction of steviol glycosides from stevia leaves involves many process steps often including extraction by organic solvents. The purpose of the present study was toExpand

Epidemic obesity and diabetes encouraged the changes in population lifestyle and consumers’ food products awareness. Food industry has responded people’s demand by producing a number ofExpand
Biotechnological production of natural zero-calorie sweeteners.
Limitations of plant-based production are discussed, and a case is put forward for the necessity of biotechnological production methods such as plant cell culture or microbial fermentation to meet needs for commercial-scale production of natural sweeteners. Expand
Nutrition, Health, and Regulatory Aspects of Digestible Maltodextrins
Up-to-date knowledge concerning production, digestion, absorption, and metabolism of maltodextrins, including potential effects on health, were reviewed and regulatory aspects, which differ significantly in Europe and the United States, are reflected on. Expand
Beneficial Effects of Supplementation of the Rare Sugar "D-allulose" Against Hepatic Steatosis and Severe Obesity in Lep(ob)/Lep(ob) Mice.
Results indicate that dietary supplementation of D-allulose especially influences postprandial hyperglycemia and obesity-related hepatic steatosis, without exercise therapy or dietary restriction, and may be useful as a supplement for preventing and improving obesity and Obesity-related disorders.

Digestive tolerance and postprandial glycaemic and insulinaemic responses after consumption of dairy desserts containing maltitol and fructo-oligosaccharides in adults
This study has shown that maltitol and scFOS can be used jointly when formulating sugar-free foods with the benefit to lower postprandial glycaemic response with only a small and transient increase in non-serious GI symptoms. Expand
Nutritional strategy to prevent fatty liver and insulin resistance independent of obesity by reducing glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide responses in mice
The results suggest that the site of glucose absorption and the GIP response determine liver fat accumulation and insulin resistance. Expand
D-psicose, an epimer of D-fructose, favorably alters lipid metabolism in Sprague-Dawley rats.
It is indicated that the D-psicose diet decreases lipogenesis, increases fatty acid oxidation, and enhances 24 h energy expenditure, leading to d-PSicose's potential for weight management. Expand
Does low-energy sweetener consumption affect energy intake and body weight? A systematic review, including meta-analyses, of the evidence from human and animal studies
The balance of evidence indicates that use of LES in place of sugar, in children and adults, leads to reduced EI and BW, and possibly also when compared with water. Expand
Dietary fibre and incidence of type 2 diabetes in eight European countries: the EPIC-InterAct Study and a meta-analysis of prospective studies
The overall evidence indicates that the intake of total and cereal fibre is inversely related to the risk of type 2 diabetes. Expand
A Low–Glycemic Index Meal and Bedtime Snack Prevents Postprandial Hyperglycemia and Associated Rises in Inflammatory Markers, Providing Protection From Early but Not Late Nocturnal Hypoglycemia Following Evening Exercise in Type 1 Diabetes
Consuming LGI food with a reduced rapid-acting insulin dose following evening exercise prevents postprandial hyperglycemia and inflammation and provides hypoglycemia protection for ∼8 h postexercise; however, the risk of late nocturnal hypoglyCEmia remains. Expand
