Kerry has introduced its new Tastesense Advanced range of solutions, to deliver low- and zero-sugar products without compromising on sweetness.
Tastesense Advanced is an alternative to sugar and stevia, supporting the development of sweetness closer to sugar and beyond 3⁰ Brix sucrose sweetness equivalence. The solution contains plant-derived materials and is said to reduce carbon emissions by 30% and water usage by 45%.
Ian McGarvey, SVP of technology and innovation for taste at Kerry, said: “We are excited to introduce our new Tastesense Advanced range that addresses sweetness optimisation and delivers high levels of sugar reduction, reaching beyond 50%. This new solution is more advanced compared to single-ingredient solutions, offering added benefits across sustainability, taste and health.”
As part of the creation process, Kerry conducted research into solutions that could “satisfy consumers’ taste preferences in low or no-sugar products”. Kerry’s innovation teams selected raw materials and examined the interaction with proprietary solutions.
Tastesense Advanced is non-GMO and is available in kosher, halal, and vegan suitable options.
