Authenticity & permissibility

Barry Callebaut Group reformulates products in three key areas: Good-for-you, Better-for-you, and Free-from.
To meet the growing demand for healthy and functional foods, the Barry Callebaut Group is continually developing reformulated chocolate and cocoa products that everyone can enjoy in a responsible and sustainable way. Our focus on sugar, fat and calorie reduction results in products and applications that offer a better energy balance and an improved product composition, without compromising on taste and perceived indulgence. Below are a few examples of the Barry Callebaut Group’s reformulated products in three key areas: Good-for-you, Better-for-you, and Free-from.

Good-for-you products with less, or no sugar or fat

"Working in innovation at Barry Callebaut satisfies my strong passion for health and nutrition, and as a part of a company that has sustainability and innovation at the heart of their strategy, I'm able to develop products that everyone can enjoy in a responsible and sustainable way."

Many without added sugar or sugar-free products replace sugar with sweeteners like polyols which may have a laxative effect. The Barry Callebaut Group developed a whole range of products with no side effects, including sugar-reduced chocolate sweetened with stevia or fruit sugars.

Other products developed in the past few years include products with less fat or less saturated fat, fat-reduced and water-based fillings. Just recently the Barry Callebaut Group was granted a patent for a process to produce fat-reduced milk chocolate.

Better-for-you choices starting from the natural goodness of the products

Our focus is on preserving what is intrinsically healthy in the ingredients we use, such as the high content of flavanols from the cocoa bean, or by creating products containing ingredients such as fibers and proteins (veggie or dairy).

Free-from choices the entire family can enjoy

For a growing number of consumers experiencing food intolerances or allergies, the Barry Callebaut Group can offer a full range of products: lactose-free, milk-free, nut-free and gluten-free products.
