Article: Why maltose is trending, and what that means for producers

When added to your favorite food & beverage products, maltose provides taste, texture and consistent quality – and, thanks to consumer demand, it’s only growing in popularity. But what are the trends fueling this growth? Why maltose, and not an ingredient like fructose? And what are the challenges for producers in meeting this demand?

In this article, we answer these questions and more, including a closer look at technologies that are making maltose production easier and more cost effective.
