Natural Sweetener Solutions

It seems that every day there is more news in the press about Stevia and Reb A, with increasing speculation when it will be approved in Europe and discussion on the best way to create a balanced sweet profile, with a short sweet aftertaste.

Recent work by the R&D team at Overseal into the different sweetener blends is very encouraging. Our preliminary research has seen good reductions in lingering bitter aftertastes. Overall sweetness is more sucrose like and the total sweetness increased. We have seen the results with a number of different sweeteners blends including the traditional Aspartame/Ace K blends as well as natural sweetners such as Stevia and Reb A.

The key is balance and optimising the level in formulations. Talin® Thaumatin is only needed at very low levels typically 0.5ppm-5ppm.

If you would like us to help you to show you how Talin® Thaumatin can benefit you products then please contact us at talin@natraceuticalgroup.com. We look forward to hearing from you.

Thaumatin naturally

Talin® (Thaumatin) is wild harvested from the West African rainforests and is an excellent low-calorie flavour modifier. It is a natural protein physically extracted from the Katemfe Fruit, Thaumatococcus daniellii.

Thaumatin has been used by the West Africans for hundreds of years to sweeten corn breads, sour fruits and also to make palm wine palatable.
