|Benefits / Claims|
Sweeteners are grouped into two categories: nutritive (deliver calories) and non-nutritive (no calories) like sugar alcohols and artificial sweeteners.
Nutritive sweeteners and sugar alcohols have low relative sweetness and may be employed as filler (bulk sweeteners).
Artificial sweeteners have high intensity sweetness with long duration.
