Experience Aura™ Flavours in ice creams with no added sugar and a low glycaemic index

Consumers looking to cut back on sugar and reduce the glycaemic impact of their diets are in for a real treat with Aura™ Flavours for low glycaemic and low or no sugar ice creams.

These six new flavourings from Danisco have been specifically developed to give the health-conscious ice cream a rich, well-balanced flavour. Masking the poor back notes often associated with artificial sweeteners, Aura™ Flavours are consistent performers, improving flavour quality in almost any ice cream recipe.

Aura™ Flavours are based on Danisco's combined strengths in sugar production and flavour creation. By mapping the taste differences between sugar and artificial sweeteners, Danisco has identified various low-calorie components in sugar raw materials that, when synergistically combined with specific flavour notes, make artificially sweetened products taste more like those containing full sugar.

Consumers may be more aware of their health, but a good taste should still never be compromised. Using Aura™ Flavours, manufacturers can be sure to turn their no/low sugar and low glycaemic ice creams into the sensory experience consumers expect.
