Swiss food giant Nestle has found a way to reduce sugar in chocolate by 40% without affecting the taste.
It's good news for those of us looking to reduce our sugar intake without having to give up sweets and it could lead to a whole new range of healthier foods that are just as good as the originals.
Nestle, which is currently attempting to secure a patent for its new idea, explained that the breakthrough involved changing the structure of sugar so that it tastes sweeter.
As a result it is possible to reduce the amount needed without any perceivable difference in taste.
Products using the new type of sugar are set to begin appearing in shops by 2018.
