Now in a revised and updated new edition which contains sevennew chapters, part I of this volume addresses relevant digestiveand dental health issues as well as nutritional considerations.Part II covers non-nutritive, high-potency sweeteners and, inaddition to established sweeteners, includes information to meetthe growing interest in naturally occurring sweeteners.  PartIII deals with the bulk sweeteners which have now been used infoods for over 20 years and are well established both in foodproducts and in the minds of consumers. In addition to the"traditional" polyol bulk sweeteners, newer products such asisomaltulose are discussed.
