BENEO presents new sugar-free sweetening solutions with Stevia and ISOMALT at ISM 2012
29th January to 1st February 2012, Cologne, Hall 10.2,Stand F62
December 2011 - BENEO, one of the leading manufacturers in functional ingredients, is presenting new solutions in sweetening at ISM in January. Attendees at the Cologne-based exhibition can look forward to herbal flavoured sugar-free candy samples using ISOMALT with Stevia, among the range of new confectionery ideas. By combining these two ingredients, BENEO has been able to achieve a product that has a rounded sugar-like taste and also provides nutritional and health benefits.
ISOMALT is the only sugar-replacer derived from sugar-beet and thus has a similar sweetening profile. It offers manufacturers an alternative to sugar in both functionality and bulk. The combination of the two naturally-derived sweeteners supports a variety of subtle or strong flavours while successfully masking the undesired after-tastes of Stevia. Blending the two ingredients in candy recipes also helps achieve added benefits; the samples from BENEO are low in calories as well as being toothfriendly and low GI. Both dental health and blood glucose benefits of ISOMALT have been approved by EFSA.
Achieving harmonised taste sensations with ISOMALT and Stevia has been made possible by the BENEO-Technology Center. Specialists of the newly formed centre of expertise have worked closely together to overcome the challenges related to formulations with Stevia. BENEO’s experience in combining its bulk sweeteners and Stevia supports the development of healthy products with a balanced sweetening and added benefits.
