Ingredion has introduced PureCircle Clean Taste Solutions, a range of stevia solutions tailored to specific food and beverage applications.
PureCircle Clean Taste Solutions aim to reduce sugar and provide sweetness across several categories including beverages, dairy, tea, coffee, sports nutrition, bakery, confectionery, savoury, sauces and dressings. The new solutions utilise more of the stevia plant for increased performance.
Nate Yates, global platform lead for sugar reduction at Ingredion, said: “Removing sugar and artificial sweeteners in product formulation is not one-size-fits-all”.
He added: “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.”
Yates explained that Reb M is “widely acknowledged” to be the best tasting glycoside on the market, but that there is no one universal stevia solution across the food and beverage categories.
“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,” he concluded.
