Why Today’s Sweetener ‘Rush’?
Ingredients article entitled "Why Today’s Sweetener ‘Rush’?" regarding sweeteners in which Steviva Syrup is featured.
A stevia-based syrup blend, developed by Steviva Brands Inc., Portland, Ore. (www.steviva.com), is designed to replace high fructose corn syrup in beverages. The liquid sweetener consists of a proprietary combination of extracts, natural flavors, and thickeners, which is said to lend a mouthfeel identical to HFCS and a sweet flavor profile that has no aftertaste.
Steviva Blend Syrup is made with stevia, which is 200 to 300 times sweeter than sucrose, making its caloric contribution to beverages negligible. Its sweetness comes from two primary steviol glycosides within the leaves of the South American plant, Stevia rebaudiana. The levels of these, as well as the 100 or more chemical components also present, determine the flavor profile. While HFCS has 4 cal and zero fiber per gram, this product yields 30 cal and 6 g fiber per 100 g....

Sugar in the spotlight
Making foods taste sweet is one of sugar’s roles. It also provides bulk to foods and beverages, and depresses the freezing point in ice cream.
Dairy manufacturers searching for the perfect high-intensity blend might do well to remember that their reformulations needn’t be an all-or-nothing proposition. In other words, reducing the sugar in dairy may serve everyone’s purposes — from health advocates and manufacturers to consumers — better than removing it outright. “Since there already are sugars, carbohydrates and calories in dairy products naturally, manufacturers should shoot for ‘reduced sugar’ and ‘low glycemic,’ and manufacture for taste with an eye on calories,” King said.....

Stevia Sweetens The Deal
Overcoming off-notes and mastering low-calorie drinks.
By Stephanie Cernivec
... Steviva Brands Inc., Portland, Ore., recently introduced a stevia-based syrup blend of
SteviaSweet 95/60 stevia extract powder; genetically-modified-organism-free erythritol; fructooligos-accharides; acacia gum; guar gum; and all-natural, organic brown sugar flavoring. The blend was designed to replace HFCS in beverages, the company says.
“The challenge for beverage manufacturers has been to cut calories and deliver the flavor and mouthfeel of traditional soft drinks,” said Thom King, president of Steviva Brands Inc., in a statement. “Flavor matching, including replicating the sweetness temporal profile of HFCS, is critical for consumers to switch from regular sodas to diet drinks. Because this syrup is optimized to provide sweetness and body, it is a no-added-sugar ‘magic bullet’ for sweetening beverages.”...
