Dublin, Dec. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Sugar, Honey, and Syrups: Caloric Sweetener Trends in the U.S." report to their offering.

The information in this report is extracted from Packaged Facts' Sugar, Sugar Substitute, and Sweetener Trends in the U.S., 4th Edition (May 2014). Intense focus on added sugars consumption and links to obesity, diabetes and heart disease is motivating consumers to both reduce total consumption and switch to sweeteners perceived as more healthful, including less refined sugars, honey, and coconut sugar. Less refined, niche sugars and sweeteners are expected to grow at the expense of commodity sugar, especially white granulated. Economic and environmental sustainability factors are increasingly important to consumer choices about sweeteners, and avoidance of genetically modified foods will likely drive sweetener selection for a growing number of consumers.
