Tate & Lyle says it has successfully removed the licorice after taste in its new stevia ingredient.
After spending two years tweaking its stevia extraction process, sweetener specialist Tate & Lyle (Decatur, IL) says it now has a stevia extract without bitter, licorice aftertaste. The Tasteva sweetener launched at this month’s Natural Products Expo West trade show.
Pledging 50% or higher reductions of sugar in foods and beverages, Tate & Lyle says its liquid stevia extract is especially suitable for high use levels. The company is showcasing Tasteva in a sparkling juice beverage along with PromOat, an oat beta-glucan ingredient acquired from Biovelop (Kimstad, Sweden) in a recent acquisition.
