Sunwin, WILD Flavors Develop Taste Modifiers for Stevia

Posted: November 16, 2009

Sunwin International Neutraceuticals, Inc. (Qufu, China) and WILD Flavors, Inc. (Erlanger, Kentucky) have announced the development of more than 30 proprietary natural taste modifications to their stevia extracts. The modifiers are designed for tabletop sweeteners, beverages, sweet and savory sauces, candy, gum, cereal, baked goods, yogurt and other applications.

Of the new modifiers, Greg Horn, senior director of sweetener technology at WILD Flavors, said, “These taste modifiers make a great sweetener even better. The natural tastes make stevia usable in a broader array of products by offering a natural, low-calorie or no-calorie sweetening system capable of achieving specific taste profiles.”
