Blommer Chocolate Company, the largest cocoa processor and ingredient chocolate supplier in North America, has announced it is extending its partnership with sugar reduction company Incredo.

The stronger alliance will also see a push into Canada for Blommer’s Discovery product line, empowered by the award-winning sugar-based sugar reduction solution, Incredo Sugar, which includes chocolate-flavoured chips and coatings.

The Chicago-headquartered company said this line of chocolate ingredients is free from high-intensity sweeteners and sugar alcohols.

Since its initial launch in 2022, Blommer’s Discovery product line of reduced sugar chocolate has been successfully adopted by numerous brands in the confectionery, bakery, and frozen novelty categories.

The growth and acceptance of the Discovery product line validates Mintel’s GNPD data that low and reduced sugar claims have seen impressive growth at CAGR 31% since 2019.

Nutritional targets

Blommer’s chocolate scientists developed various solutions to meet the nutritional targets and flavour demands of low and reduced sugar applications.

“We noticed that 2g-4g sugar per serving is the sweet spot for many low sugar brands”, said Scott Funk, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Blommer Chocolate Company. “It’s noteworthy mentioning that some of the Discovery products could help our customers hit that target without using any high intensity sweetener or sugar alcohols.”

  • Upcoming new products will also be introduced at this week’s Sweets & Snacks Expo in Indianapolis and IFT First in Chicago later this year.
