Hi!
Hoping for some guidance on the added sugars.
We make ice cream, obviously the components of the ice cream mix need to be included as added sugar.
But what do I do in the instance of confectionary and cakes which become an ingredient in the ice cream?
Say for example I was to add a marshmallow, do I need to include the % sugar from the Marsh mallow?
Note: product made in the EU

Each jurisdiction handles labeling a little differently, but I would expect a sub-component like that to fit into the ingredient list with a parenthetical set of its own ingredients.

 

milk, sugar, marshmallow (sugar, other sugar, pixie dust), natural flavoring, x, y, z.

Added Sugar is just that,, cane, etc.

 

Marshmellow would be in the ingredient listing and not an added sugar - a marshmellow is quite complex and has its own set of ingredients.

That's how I'd do it, and do with sub stuffs, like chocolate chips, etc.

Hi AJL,

 

Are you asking about the ingredient label,  nutrient label or an ''added sugar'' claim?

I'm working for ice cream company too. In Canada, NFT does not include Added Sugars - though, AFAIK US has this requirement. So, it depends on your country regulations RE: NFT content.

Our customer (non EU) wants us to inform them about how much is added sugars (g/100g).
So I wanted to know if this means from all sources, i.e sugars as a compound of an ingredient (say we add chocolate, this contains sugar).

Yes, those would be sweetening ingredients like sugar (e.g. granulated, cane, etc.), honey (e.g. liquid, honey crystals, etc.), maple syrup, and so on, as well as ingredients containing sugar (e.g. chocolates, cookies, cake pieces, fruit preps, ripples and bases, corn syrup/glucose solids, etc.). However, natural sugars from milk, cream, butter, cream cheese, SMP are different, they should  not be included into added sugars.

Thanks! That is what I had thought. Lots of math, because of course the cake is a % then the cakes have all sorts of different sugars added, such as sugar syrups which are only 77% i.e 77g sugar/100g. So lots of going through specifications.
Glucose and normal sugar also have different amounts of sugar/100g according to the raw material specifications
