Reducing the sugar content in soft ice cream is an extremely challenging task, as the sugar acts not only the sweetness but also as the antifreeze functionality – less sugar usually results in blocked machines during the production. But now, after months of intense collaboration, the Swedish sugar reduction experts from Bayn Europe and the German application and ingredients specialists from Bioscience Food Solutions (BFS) made a tasty breakthrough and created an indulgent 75% sugar-reduced soft ice cream which is in taste and texture almost indistinguishable from the traditional, high-caloric counterpart. This achievement together with other sugar reduced indulgences will be presented at the major food ingredient exhibition FiE during 28-30 Nov, Frankfurt.

“Sugar reduction is a complex challenge, it needs scientific approaches in the fields of ingredients, nutrition and sensory application – and it needs a partner consortium because the solution is never a single ingredient,” says Lucy Dahlgren, founder and CEO of Bayn Europe. “We are happy to work with a competent and creative partner like BFS, who brings in all their broad food industry experience and lateral thinking to satisfy the needs and demands of costumers,” Lucy Dahlgren continues.

“In the past months, we have been working intensively with Bayn to formulate the sugar reduced soft ice cream, and we are glad that we achieved 75% sugar reduction and kept the taste and texture everyone loves,” says Sebastian Jakob, founder and managing director of BFS. “To reduce the calorie content in both dairy and non-dairy soft ice cream, the team from Bayn worked on the project, six food technologists from us – and our partner network also put large effort into achieving the ultimate formulation. Futura Ingredients has taken the major part in developing the texturizing system to provide the required stability and texture, Mokate adds creamers, Kall Ingredients puts Isoglucose in the mix and the Vanilla taste is delivered by Camlin Fine Sciences,” comments Jakob.
