Steviva Ingredients at IFT 2014 In New Orleans
August 18, 2014

  • Steviva Ingredients Featured in article entitled – Ingredient Innovations Evolve 2014 IFT Overview: Exhibiting at the expo for the first time, Steviva, Portland, Ore. (www.stevivaingredients.com), walked attendees through its range of naturally derived sweeteners. One such ingredient, Nectevia, functions as a low-calorie plug-and-play replacer for high-fructose corn syrup in beverages, bakery, condiments, and fruit preparations. A blend of agave nectar and stevia, this low-glycemic liquid offers subtle honey notes and a mostly neutral flavor base. It is also four times as sweet as sugar, allowing for a 75% sugar reduction without the bitterness sometimes associated with stevia. It is also organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free, and it is heat, pH, and shelf stable.

    Another option, Fructevia™, provides twice the sweetness of sugar with a much lower glycemic index rating thanks to its crystalline fructose component—and the fact that formulators only need to use half as much Fructevia as they would sugar. The blend also includes fructooligosaccharides, stevia extract, and magnesium carbonate, which combine to create a great-tasting sweetener that caramelizes and browns just like sugar. The clean-label-friendly crystalline sweetener is also chemical-, allergen-, and gluten-free. Steviva also introduced its new SteviaSweet 95-60 Liquid, a proprietary blend of steviol glycosides that provides 25 times the sweetness of sugar. This ingredient is easily incorporated into baked goods, confections, and packaged meals, and it shows particular potential in reducing sugar levels in typically high-calorie beverages without affecting their taste.

Lighter Back to School Beverages

Lighter Back to School Beverages
When it comes to the increasingly popular, all-natural, high intensity sweeteners based on extracts from the stevia plant (Stevia rebaudiana), suppliers are differentiating by sourcing, processing methods and composition. All of this affects the stevia ingredient’s taste of sweet and flavor of sweet.

“Stevia products are not alike,” said Thom King, president of Steviva Ingredients, Portland, Oregon “Their only commonality is that they are all derived from the stevia plant. Multiple compounds within the stevia leaves — steviol glycosides — have characteristics ranging from sweet to bitter. Isolating the purest, best-tasting components from leaves grown in a controlled environment is half the challenge. The method used to extract these compounds significantly impacts flavor and quality.”

The company recently introduced a concentrated stevia extract that contains 98% minimum rebaudioside A (reb A), which has intense sweetness, Mr. King said. “The flavor is a sharper, sweet profile in comparison to the softer, smoother profile of our original extract,” he said. “We also have an erythritol and stevia
blend that is a 1:2 plugin replacement for sucrose and high-fructose corn syrup. It is used in several carbonated soft drinks and even more energy drinks. By using this sweetener combination,
manufacturers have enjoyed up to a 98% sugar reduction.”

Erythritol is a bulk sweetener that has zero sugar, zero calories and zero aftertaste.

Building a Better Yogurt – Sweeteners

Building a better yogurt

When a natural positioning is desired, many formulators are looking to stevia-based sweeteners for assistance. But Thom King, president of Steviva Ingredients, Portland, Ore., said there are many stevia products in the marketplace and they are quite different.

“Their only commonality is that they are all derived from the stevia plant,” he said. “Multiple compounds within the stevia leaves — steviol glycosides — have characteristics ranging from sweet to bitter. Isolating the purest, best-tasting components from leaves grown in a controlled environment requires technological expertise, as the method used to extract these compounds significantly impacts flavor and quality.”

The company markets a patented blend of non-bioengineered crystalline fructose, steviol glycosides and inulin that has application in yogurt fruit preps.

“It can give up to a 75% added sugar reduction and yet retains an excellent mouthfeel and flavor profile,” Mr. King said.

It also blends well with high intensity sweeteners such as stevia and monk fruit and is used in everything from ice cream and confectionery, to baked goods, beverages, and table-top sweeteners.
