Honey is counted among top natural sweeteners for consumers
Friday, May 13th, 2016

Consumers are demanding more food producers start using honey. This high demand for nature’s all-natural sweetener comes from consumers’ rise in faith in honey as a better-for-you alternative to other sweeteners.

 “Beverage companies are finding new ways to formulate wth honey and some are promoting the sweetener as laden with antioxidant and antibacterial properties, as well as a good source of vitamins and minerals,” said an article in BevNET magazine. “The uptick in honey is most apparent in new premium teas, including two varieties of Purity Organic’s recently launched ‘supertea’ line.”

 The resurgence of honey stems also from consumers seeking better-for-you alternatives outside of the government’s normal recommendations. Natural sweetener alternatives, like honey, account for only 1% of the global market for sweeteners, according to Lux Research, a Boston-based market research firm.

 This demand of consumers is causing companies that use sweeteners to no longer rely on certain kinds, and instead are turning to natural and innovative options.

Honey Candy Sooths

After fighting breast cancer, a New Jersey mother has started a lollipop business as a means to combat the negative side effects of chemotherapy.

Samantha Kowalczyk is a holistic health coach in Scotch Plains, New Jersey, and recently won her battle against cancer. The metallic taste that comes with cancer treatments was what inspired her to create “Soothease,” a candy company.

“When I went through chemo, everything tasted awful,” she said to Candy Industry magazine. “I thought there has to be something to make this better.”

 She started experimenting in the kitchen and eventually developed her own line of candy, with flavors including Honey Lavender, Chocolate Brown Rice and Orange Barley flavors. Each batch is made with all-natural ingredients like cocoa, chamomile and honey. 

“I found various ingredients, which aided in soothing my mouth and helped my food taste better,” Kowalczyk said. “The honey and barley coats the tongue and helps patients taste food better within a half an hour.”

She says her candies aren’t just for chemotherapy patients. They are great for children and pregnant women as well.
