Sweetness with no aftertaste to conceal.

One of the challenges of creating reduced-calorie products is including masking ingredients to camouflage the bitterness associated with alternative sweeteners. But there’s a stevia sweetener that eliminates the bitterness, transforming bittersweet into better sweet.

TASTEVA® Stevia Sweetener is the stevia sweetener that delivers a clean, sweet taste with no bitter aftertaste, even at higher usage levels. Produced from the leaves of the stevia plant through a proprietary process, TASTEVA® Stevia Sweetener delivers a better-tasting, natural solution that’s suitable for use in sugar-free, no-sugar-added and reduced-sugar beverages and foods.

  • Reduce sugar without reducing consumer liking.
  • Cut calories without compromising on taste.
  • Formulate the natural products your customers demand.

TASTEVA® Stevia Sweetener has a superior taste profile over Reb A 97 and other stevia products

  • TASTEVA® minimises the bitter aftertaste of stevia that 80% of the population can taste.
  • Eliminates the need to use masking ingredients in reduced-sugar formulations.
  • In a consumer test, a 50% sugar-reduced tea drink sweetened with TASTEVA® achieved equal liking scores compared to the full-sugar product.*
  • Over 80% of people who tried TASTEVA® in a strawberry-flavoured drink preferred it over ordinary stevia sweeteners.**

TASTEVA® Stevia Sweetener is both natural and versatile.

  • Suitable for use in sugar-free, no-sugar-added and reduced-sugar beverages and foods.
  • Allows for significant sugar reduction with substantially less aftertaste.
  • Natural plant extract that meets FDA GRAS specifications for steviol glycosides.

Carbonates in New Zealand

Despite low calorie cola carbonates seeing a better performance than regular cola carbonates in off-trade value terms in 2017 (growth compared with decline), the uptake of the new variants Coca-Cola Life and Pepsi Max was slow. 2016 saw a drop in current value growth in low calorie cola carbonates compared with 2015, when the products were introduced, and although 2017 saw a turnaround in growth, this was mainly due to the long-standing low calorie products Coca-Cola Diet and Coca-Cola Zero driv...
