Task Force Information

Objectives

Given that sweet taste has a powerful hedonic appeal, reducing preferences for sweet foods and beverages might be an additional contributor in obesity prevention. Techniques used to measure the sweetness content and/or intensity of food or beverages, are not harmonised. This task force will first identify scientific gaps in sweetness measure and perception, to then deliver a science-based consensus on which method is the reference to measure sweetness of food & beverages. To compliment this, the Task Force aims at providing recommendation on how to communicate sweetness modification to consumers without jeopardizing consumer retention.
