DouxMatok has developed a platform of technologies making flavour delivery more efficient, allowing for sugar-based sugar reduction with no after-tastes. Our Incredo™ sugars facilitate a reduction over 40% while providing 100% sweetness, great delights and better nutrition in applications such as baked goods, chocolates, spreads and cereal bars. DouxMatok is scaling up production in Europe with SuedZucker and in the USA with NA partners and will commercialise as of Q2 2019.
Competences & capabilities
DouxMatok is primarily an R&D company. We develop reformulations and NPD capabilities working with partners to reduce sugars in their products and improve nutritional value. While scaling up to commercialise our generation 1 products, we are working on the next generation of our products that will be clean label, organic and cover salt and other flavours. We’re also working on adapting our technologies so that they are effective in beverages.
Partner in the following EIT Food projects
SuReBiC: Sugar reduced biscuits and cakes that meet consumer sensory, naturalness and cost expectations
Reducing sugar consumption is essential for health but a huge challenge for the food industry.
SureChoc: Sugar reduced chocolate and chocolate chip cookies to meet consumer sensory, naturalness and cost expectation
Sugar reduction in foods remains challenging; it is not only the sweetness of sugar but also physiochemical properties and cost that have to be matched.
SuReBar: Integrating innovative sugar and fibre technologies to produce clean label sugar reduced products, demonstrated through cereal bars
Sugar reduction in foods remains challenging; it is not only the sweetness of sugar but also the physical properties and cost that have to be matched.
Co-creating initiatives to increase consumer trust in food
RIS Consumer Engagement Labs are pre-competitive co-creation sessions carried out by a coherent group of consumers (selected based on specific segmentation criteria) in a joint place and limited in time, focused on ideation and development of new product concepts.
The Smart Tags communication project is set to increase consumer trust towards food products by sharing information about the food product value chain during the whole life-cycle of the product, enabling novel service concepts and interactivity between consumers and the food industry.
The EIT FoodScienceClass aims to bring students closer to food systems by helping them understand the role of food production and technology in food safety and security.
