Nestlé Brings Sugar-Reduction Technology To UK's Milkybar

This new product, called "Milkybar Wowsomes", is stated to contain 30% less sugar than the usual Milkybar, containing no artificial sweeteners, and is set to be launched in the United Kingdom and Ireland next week.

Nestlé says that Milkybar Wowsomes are the first to use its technology that changes the structure of sugar to make it dissolve faster on the tongue. When used in chocolate, it means the end product can contain up to 40 per cent less sugar without any loss of taste.

Nestlé has said that this sugar is "amorphous and porous", being made through spraying sugar, water and milk into warm air and then drying the mixture.

The result is that it releases more sweetness for less sugar.

The new Milkybar sweets will come in two versions - white chocolate or a mix of white and milk chocolate - and have creamy centers with crispy oats. Nestle will introduce more treats using the new sugar by 2019 and expand into new markets that could range from Latin America to Europe and Asia, he added, without providing details.
