A detailed study was made on fructose syrups from chicory. The project considered what producers were doing, what customers thought, what were the price trends, and especially what the key parameters were with respect to entering the business. Specific recommendations were made and the study concluded that, at least for this client, fructose from chicory did not represent a commercial opportunity.

The study looked in considerable detail at the technology of fructose production and provided a number of economic scenarios based on different technical parameters.
