Details of the Innovation Need

Background: the growing incidence of diabetes and obesity diseases is one of the key challenges for global healthcare. Excessive sugar consumption is proved to be the main reason for these tendencies. Reducing the sucrose content and finding its substitutes have been important issues for food and beverage companies for many decades.

The sugar content in ice cream is at least 14%. In addition to the function of sweetness, sugar in ice cream also affects the structure – it reduces the freezing point of the mixture and makes the consistency of ice cream whipped and flexible at a temperature of minus 18°C.

Therefore, the main task today is to find an ingredient to replace sugar as a structure-forming agent and filler and to develop a finished product based on it, which can be produced in an industrial scale. At the same time, this ingredient or a complex of ingredients should be close to sugar in cost or be cheaper (the cost of sugar varies between 60 to 70 rubles per kg). The sweetness in the products is supposed to be created by natural high-intensity sweeteners (stevia, sweet proteins, etc.), which must be added in fairly small quantities due to their high sweetness.

Product Requirements:

NoList of parametersUOMValue
1Taste and smell-Pure, with a pronounced sweet milky taste and smell
2Consistency-Dense, creamy, without particles of protein, lactose and ice crystals
3Colour-From milky white to creamy, homogeneous throughout the mass
4Mass fraction of milk fat%min. 12%
5Mass fraction of dry skimmed milk residue%7-10
6Mass fraction of dry substances%36

Additional informations:

  • the raw cost of ice cream without sugar should not exceed the raw cost of a similar ice cream with sugar (on the market of innovations call solver);
  • all ingredients used to replace sugar in the developing recipe must have a glycemic index of no more than 10.

Method of control of the obtained result:

- preparation and provision to the customer of the final report with recipes, characteristics of raw materials, a detailed description of the technological process of production (technological stages, parameters, equipment), cost calculation.

- confirmation of the developed formulation and technology shall be the reproduction of the product by the specialists of of our company.

Discarded solutions

  • Were developed recipes with using polyols (maltitol, isomalt, erythritol, polydextrose) and dietary fiber (inulin and oligofructose), as well as using allulose and tagatose.
