Aug. 3, 2014 – Steviva Ingredients has launched GMO-free Erysweet Erythritol, a sweetener for use in such applications as bars, desserts and sweet baked goods.
“Erysweet is unique in that it is sourced from Europe, which provides quality, consistency and flow not always found with erythritol sourced from other geographic areas,” said Thom King, president of Steviva Ingredients, in a release. Erythritol has been used as a medium for delivery of high-intensity sweeteners, such as stevia and monk fruit.
Produced through natural fermentation, the polyol is 70 per cent as sweet as sugar and has a clean, slightly cooling, smooth flavour, said the release. It can also be paired with natural sweeteners to better mimic the texture and mouthfeel of sucrose. Erysweet is synergistic with other sweeteners and masks bitter flavours of high-intensity sweeteners, making it suitable for use in a variety of applications, including bars, shakes, beverages, desserts, sweet baked goods (up to 90 per cent sugar reduction).
At 0.2 calories per gram and a low glycemic load, Erysweet is safe for diabetics and is kosher certified, said the company.
Erysweet is shelf stable and available in standard particle size and 100-mesh fine powder.
