Food-tech start-up, B.T. Sweet, Ltd. has introduced CAMBYA™, its plant-based, sweetening platform to cut loads of sugar from treats, such as hazelnut and chocolate spreads.

B.T. Sweet ‘cracked the code’ on helping manufacturers create hazelnut and chocolate spreads with less sugar. The company offers leading sweet spread, filling, and coating companies’ new abilities to meet their sugar-reduction targets without compromising on flavour qualities.

According to the UK’s National Health Service, while it is recommended that adults have no more than 30g of free sugars daily, children ages 7 to 10 should have no more than 24g per day. And children ages 4 to 6 should have no more than 19g of free sugars in a day.

CAMBYA is a plant-based, one-to-one drop-in sugar replacer for use in multiple food applications.

The proprietary formula, based on soluble fibres, monk fruit, and select botanicals, is a 1:1 equivalent to sugar both in function and flavour, while acting as a source of naturally derived beneficial fibres.

Yoav Gaon, CEO of B.T. Sweet, explains: “For many, a breakfast or school sandwich is incomplete without chocolate hazelnut spread. Parents struggle with their kids’ demands for it, and have a hard time resisting it themselves. We succeeded in developing a tasty solution that kids of all ages love simply by switching white sugar with CAMBYA.”
