Nestle says tech will reduce sugar in chocolate, keep taste

A major candy maker says it has new technology that could potentially reduce sugar in chocolate by as much as 40 percent, without affecting the taste.

Researchers at the Nestle chocolate company say they have found a way to use only natural ingredients to change the structure of sugar particles.

This process dissolves more quickly on the tongue, so less sugar can be used.

Nestle is patenting the findings and hopes to begin using it in products in 2018.
