Drastic changes in lifestyles have had a severe impact on the eating habits of the global population. Over the past few years, improving GDPs and higher per capita incomes have allowed consumers to indulge in unhealthy food items, thus serving as the root cause of several lifestyle-related diseases.

Non-Sugar Sweeteners Market: Trends and Opportunities
High prevalence of obesity and diabetes are the primary growth drivers for the global non-sugar sweeteners market. Both of these conditions demand patients to lose weight with urgency, which has coaxed millions of sufferers to eliminate the intake of sugar from their daily diet.
