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.
  • Delivers labelling simplicity: Stevia extract.

TASTEVA® Stevia Sweetener is easy to formulate with.

  • Ideal for a wide range of applications including beverages, dairy, baked goods, dressings and sauces, frozen foods, processed fruits and vegetables, snacks and cereals.
  • Efficient high-potency sweetness: 200 to 300 times more potent than sugar.
