Sugar and Isoglucose

The EU is about to abolish the sugar - and the isoglucose - quota system in 2016/17. Isoglucose made from corn occupies about 50 % of the US sweetener market while its market share in the EU caloric sweetener market is less than 5 %.

Against this background Yelto Zimmer analyses the economics of isoglucose production in Europe in order to understand its competitiveness vis-à-vis sugar.
