Ohly is pleased to unveil its exciting, new SAV-R-SWEET at IFT’16 ahead of its official launch this fall. SAV-R-SWEET is a natural and clean solution that provides food and beverage items with reduced sugar content without compromising its taste when the sugar has been replaced by a sweetener (mainly Stevia). Now with the addition of SAV-R-SWEET, the bitter aftertaste caused by high concentrations of steviol glycosides is countered by eliminating or reducing of any the steviol glycoside-related off-taste, while balancing the sweet taste and the fruitiness in food or beverage compositions.
SAV-R-SWEET is stable under a variety of process conditions such as pH, temperature, holding time and during the long storage time of the final food product or beverage. Also, it provides a unique, more effective bitter taste masking property when compared to other high nucleotides yeast products and only a very low dosage (approx.0.003%) is required to mask any bitterness or licorice notes. This allows for a further reduction of the sugar content (up to 10% absolute) in food and beverages without compromising on taste.
SAV-R-SWEET is a high peptide and high 5′ nucleotide yeast extract that is 100% soluble in water and forms a transparent solution. It’s characterized by a neutral (not yeasty) flavor at a low dosage and can be labelled as a natural flavoring, which permits its use in dairy, fruit preparations, confectionery and beverages without any concern.
