„Sugar-free trend" - sugar confectionery of tomorrow

How does sugar confectionery and sugar-free or a sugar-reduced diet fit together? Surprisingly well! Above all, sweets with sugar substitutes or sweeteners address diabetics.

Bonbons and chewing-gum are at the top of the list of the most popular sugar-free sweets, which in the meantime encompasses numerous products that are manufactured using less sugar. At the same time, of course, the taste is not allowed to be compromised! After all it is the taste that turns bonbons, chocolates, marzipan and co. into an enjoyable experience.
