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.
