Firmenich, Danisco Develop Stevia-formulated Ingredients for Ice Cream Industry

Posted: November 10, 2009

Danisco and Firmenich have developed stevia-formulated ingredients for the ice cream industry. The new formulations, which include sweetness and mouthfeel enhancers and masking ingredients, have been created by combining PureCircle-produced Reb A and Firmenich’s ModulaSense technologies.

Of the new ingredients PureCircle’s sales and marketing director Peter Milsted said, “The roll-out of products containing stevia is accelerating, driven by consumer demands for full taste with lower calories and natural ingredients … This breakthrough technical development by world class formulators Firmenich and Danisco allows stevia to be supplied on global scale to a major new application area.”
