Batory Sweetener Solutions (Rosemont, IL), a newly formed business unit of Batory Foods, has entered into an agreement with the Canadian sugar reduction experts, NutraEx Foods Inc. (Burnaby, BC, Canada), to distribute its SugarLike line of products. NutraEx’s SugarLike products are designed to be “plug-and-play” so that formulators can nimbly substitute conventional sugars for less caloric sweeteners to deliver either 100% sugar replacement or reduction with all-natural, non-GMO, plant-based ingredients. The line mitigates off flavor notes associated with natural alternative sweeteners, with zero glycemic index, preventing sugar spikes.
“Batory Sweetener Solutions is eager to support customers in making a meaningful impact on healthier food and beverage products through more and better-tasting lower-sugar options,” said Jessica Zielinski, vice president and General Manager for Batory Sweetener Solutions, in a press release. “Adding the SugarLike series as a prominent product offering brings our customers even more ingredient diversity and formulation choices as they develop healthier, lower-calorie foods and beverages for their targeted consumers base.”
The SugarLike line utilizes a proprietary dry embedding technology that the company says ensures even distribution of high intensity sweeteners such as stevia or monk fruit, with bulking ingredients such as allulose, erythritol, or sugar. This process is supposed to stabilize adhesion in the aggregation, and is less costly than agglomeration.
“We are making the world a better place with healthy sweets,” said Lily Zou, founder and CEO of NutraEx Food Inc, in a press release. “Consumers can reduce the sugar in their food or beverages, and still enjoy fabulous sweet taste. These embedded sweeteners are made with a patented process that precisely formulates the natural, plant-based ingredients to meet food and beverage demanding requirements.”
The new agreement will be inaugurated at Natural Products Expo West, Booth 196, taking place March 9-11 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
