HB Natural Ingredients, a subsidiary of BGG World, announced its line of Vitosa natural flavors has received FEMA GRAS approval.

Designed to provide flavor modifying properties, the line of three stevia ingredients (Active, Delight and Match) can be used in a range of soft drinks, juices, energy, sports drinks, flavored water, cookie and candy applications. The ingredient works to improve the overall sensory performance of natural sugars and artificial high-intensity sweeteners through increasing sweetness up to 50% in added sugar water, at the proper dosage. The ingredient is also synergistic with low-calorie and slow release carbohydrate sweeteners and rare sugars.
