Key Features and Benefits

Social media impact consumers sentiment on non-caloric sweeteners.

Consumer’s insights on natural sweeteners.

Industry and scientific media’s influences on consumers information.

Regional differences in consumer interest and information level on non-caloric sweeteners.

Key Market Issues

Providing one well cited study about aspartame health risks has revealed conflicting beliefs with different stakeholders. This has showed that: not all consumers are convinced with the research findings, how manufacturers have reacted to the claims, and how influential websites with many readers have interpreted the study.

Sucralose vs the brand Splenda is interpreted differently within the online communities.

Countries such as China, India, Brazil and Mexico, which are subject to high overweight/obesity rates, do not use online media to raise awareness and educate consumers on the relationship of sugar consumption and weight.

Consumers in UK change their sweeteners attitudes within one year.

Key Highlights

It has been identified that Splenda is the most popular within consumers. Although Amino Sweet has been approved for tabletop sweeteners longer than the other brands, it has proven to be unpopular with consumers.

The results of the survey reveal that there is a relatively small percentage of people who perceive stevia as natural. This also suggests that many people are still ill-informed of the benefits of this sweetener.
