Sugar Flex

Delicious and nutritious sauces to reduce sugar

Reducing sugar is getting a lot of attention from consumers, and from food processors and regulators alike.

At Griffith Foods, we strive to perfect taste and texture, and to improve the nutritional profile of our solutions. This includes offering sugar reduced nutritional sauces.

The challenge: balancing taste and convenience with nutrition

Sugar not only impacts taste, flavour and texture, but also shelf life; and consumers are unwilling to compromise on any of these elements. The key is therefore to reduce sugar content whilst ensuring consumer appeal and product safety, as well as adhering to regulatory requirements. We can unlock this challenge for you with our sauces.

Our Solution: Sugar Flex

Great tasting sauces, lower sugar content

Using our Sugar Flex Toolbox, we support our customers with tailor-made nutritional sauces that include reduced, low, or no added sugar options

We also partner with our customers to meet their regulatory needs and costs specifications, whilst ensuring shelf life and food safety. Just as importantly, we maintain (and often even improve) flavour and therefore consumer acceptance.  

Tailor-made to suit your needs

Our R&D teams work closely with you to design sauces with unique flavours and textures to suit your product range extension or launch. Indeed, Sugar Flex enables a wide range of sweet, savoury, spicy and tangy taste profiles.  

Beyond using our sauces, they can meet your nutritional and organoleptic requirements by using our seasonings or value add coating systems, and by relying on their expert knowledge of various animal and plant-based substrates.
