Global provider of ingredients for the food and beverage industry Ingredion is introducing PureCircle Clean Taste Solutions – zero calorie sweeteners tailored to specific applications.
“Removing sugar and artificial sweeteners in product formulation is not one-size-fits-all,” explained Nate Yates, Gobal Platform Lead for sugar reduction at Ingredion. “PureCircle Clean Taste Solutions are designed to streamline product formulation by delivering unique sweetness profiles required by food and beverage brands. Our team of experts helps our customers to develop the best sweetening experience and quickly bring them to market.”
The sweetening solution from Ingredion is designed to provide clean-tasting sweetness across a number of categories including beverages, dairy, tea, bakery, confectionery, sauces and more. According to Ingredion, PureCircle has the broadest portfolio of stevia sweeteners.
“It is widely acknowledged Reb M is the best tasting glycoside on the market, but what we’ve seen is there is no one universal stevia solution across food and beverage categories,” added Yates. “These stevia solutions go one step further by harnessing more of the synergies between molecules in the stevia leaf, including Reb M, to create the best possible taste outcome for specific applications for up to 100% sugar reduction.”
There have been advancements in stevia sweeteners in recent years to improve taste performance, sustainability and availability of stevia. Last year Ingredion published a peer-reviewed lifecycle assessment which aimed to demonstrate the sustainability advantages of stevia compared with other sweeteners like sugar using a sweetness equivalence basis.
