PureCircle by Ingredion has introduced NSF-13, a sweetener suitable for dairy, bakery and beverage applications. Comprising sugar-like steviol glycosides, including Reb M, the product increases targeted flavour tonalities, notably brown notes, while reducing potential bitterness on top of its core sweetness, the company says.
The product meets European regulatory standards for use, meaning the company can now offer its sweetness quality solution to food and beverage companies across the globe.
Sue Bancroft, Ingredion Category Lead, Beverages, commented: “We are delighted to further strengthen our existing flavour modifier portfolio with the addition of PureCircle NSF-13. This new addition is our highest performing natural flavour modifier when we compare the typical attributes required to round off sweetness quality, reduce linger, bring out zesty notes and enhance brown notes across a wide range of food and beverage categories. Produced through PureCircle’s most advanced technologies, NSF-13 carries a consumer-preferred ‘natural flavour’ label and is organic suitable”
