Sweegen is on a mission to reduce the sugar and artificial sweeteners in the global diet.
Since replacing sugar in foods and beverages can pose product development challenges due to the texture, viscosity, and mouthfeel that sugar provides without a lingering aftertaste, Sweegen has developed Bestevia® Taste Solutions, which are a range of ingredient solutions that use next generation stevia sweeteners in combination with proprietary flavors and best-in-class texturants to help solve product development challenges related to sugar reduction.
Bestevia® Taste Solutions are offered for a range of food applications including beverages, dairy, bakery, confectionery, condiments, sauces, and nutritional/weight management products. Stevia is versatile in application making it an ideal sugar replacement for consumers seeking a sweetener that meets their demands for a cleaner, plant-based, reduced sugar diet.
Sweegen’s stevia is a proprietary sweetener made from a plant of the same name. The process begins with the extraction of naturally-occurring sweet compounds, called steviol glycosides, from stevia leaves.
Enzymes are used to bioconvert these steviol glycosides into the preferred, better tasting components, which are then isolated and purified. The sweetener molecules produced (Reb M, Reb D or any other targeted steviol glycoside) are identical to those found in nature. The result is great-tasting, next generation stevia sweeteners for use in beverage and food products which delight global consumers.
