Tate & Lyle expands sweetener portfolio

Tate & Lyle has unveiled a new addition to its sweetener portfolio, Tasteva Sol Stevia Sweetener. Tasteva Sol is said to enhance Tate & Lyle's ability to assist customers in resolving solubility challenges associated with stevia in food and beverages. In addition, it meets the growing consumer demand for healthier and tastier, sugar and calorie-reduced products. Derived from the leaf itself, Tasteva Sol is a "premium-tasting stevia that has over 200 times the solubility of Reb M and D products on the market," said the company. The new ingredient addresses solubility challenges often found in beverage concentrates, dairy fruit preparations and sweet syrups at high sugar replacement levels. Tasteva Sol can be used alone or in combination with Reb M stevia sweeteners for effective sugar reduction. According to Tate & Lyle, "its outstanding solubility allows for effortless dissolution in concentrates and maintains solubility even in low pH environments". Papao Saisnith, senior director of global marketing & innovation, sugar and calorie reduction at Tate & Lyle, said: “Consumers continue to shift from full sugar to reduced sugar foods and beverages and do not want to sacrifice taste. Tasteva Sol meets consumer needs as it provides a solution for manufacturers looking to formulate great-tasting, clean-label, sugar-reduced products where solubility often becomes a challenge. Used alone or in combination with Reb M stevia sweeteners, Tasteva Sol is over 200x more soluble than other stevia sweeteners and delivers solubility and sweetness, which fills a gap among existing sweeteners and strengthens our overall portfolio." She continued: “This addition furthers our commitment to transform lives through the science of food and helps our customers to meet consumer expectations for making healthy food tastier and tasty food healthier".
