SGF and Tate & Lyle to Introduce Innovative Natural Stevia Sweetener at FiE 2017

Nov 16, 2017

Consumer trends leave beverage manufacturers facing the challenge of formulating great tasting beverages with less sugar and fewer calories. However, they can now find a solution with Optimizer Stevia™, the ideal replacement for regular stevia products ranging from RA80 to RA97. Optimizer Stevia™ allows for up to 50% sugar replacement while delivering an improved taste, and exhibits increased solubility in routine syrup use, facilitating beverage-bottling operations. This is an all-round practical solution that offers great taste and higher solubility at a lower cost.

Two innovative, low-calorie beverage prototypes are to make their debut at the show, one being an Organic Apple Drink with 50% of the calories found in regular offerings, and the other being a low-calorie Citrus Refresher achieving an 87.5% reduction in calories, both featuring SGF’s Optimizer Stevia™ 3.10. With the exception of SGF’s stevia, the other ingredients in the two beverage prototypes are standard – distilled water, fruit juice or extract, and granulated sugar. They present balanced sweetness with well-rounded taste profiles comprising of clean flavours and no aftertaste, and are carefully designed to meet natural-origin positioning requirements for this class of beverages.

SGF’s complete range of stevia products has been created to meet the vast majority of manufacturers’ needs, ranging from significant sugar reduction to budget maximization, and is now available through the Tate & Lyle global network, with their decades of expertise in food and beverage formulations.

Visitors can sample the great tasting Optimizer Stevia™ 3.10 in the two natural-origin, low-calorie prototype drinks at Booth No. 080R71. Food and beverage manufacturers looking to stay competitive can’t miss the opportunity to see for themselves just how SGF’s stevia sweeteners can improve their business by driving product innovation and brand success in an increasingly challenging global market characterised by consumers increasingly looking for alternatives to high calorie drinks and foods.
