Ulrick & Short releases gluten-free sugar alternative for baked goods

Clean label specialists Ulrick & Short from UK have launched Avanté 9, a new gluten-free substitute for sugar. The ingredient is touted as reducing the need for sugar in bakery formulations by up to 20 % while retaining the volume and texture of cakes, muffins and other baked goods.

As a gluten-free, non-GM and clean label ingredient, Avanté 9 taps into a number of front-of-pack declaration trends. It mimics the functional properties of sugar without requiring any factory process changes, ensuring easy application, according to Ulrick & Short.
