- The scientists coat tiny food-safe particles with natural sugar, like sucrose or glucose, which tricks the receptors on the tongue into thinking that it’s eating the full thing.
- The technology cuts down sugar from 25% to 55% depending on the food, and the sugar-carrying particle is a common food additive, so it doesn’t require new safety testing.
- DouxMatok is using their technology to cut back sugar in candy, cake, and soda while preserving their flavors. They have already begun testing it with manufacturers, and plan to license the technology soon.
