Steviva Ingredients Announces Erysweet+ Rebrand
Erysweet+ with stevia and Erysweet+ 100 mesh fine powder join existing portfolio
PORTLAND, Oregon — Steviva Ingredients, a global supplier of all-natural high-intensity sweeteners and custom sweetening solutions, recently announced the rebranding of two ingredients. Joining the existing Erysweet portfolio are Erysweet+ with stevia and Erysweet+ 100 mesh fine powder, formerly marketed as Steviva Blend and Stevia Blend fine powder, respectively.
Erysweet+ with stevia is a proprietary blend of SteviaSweet 95-60 and naturally fermented erythritol. It delivers a natural solution that is twice as sweet as sugar, with just 0.2 calories per gram. Similar to sugar in mouthfeel, it’s ideal for applications like beverages, sauces, marinades, condiments, baked goods, jellies, and confections.
Erysweet+ 100 mesh fine powder is also made from SteviaSweet 95-60 and naturally fermented erythritol, but milled to a 100 mesh granulation. It is a low-calorie replacement for 10x powdered sugar in confections, icings, frosting, meringues, sweet coatings, and other applications that demand a round and full sweetness profile. It is also twice as sweet as sugar, with just 0.2 calories per gram.
“This rebranding effort provides our customers with the same superior formulations they’ve come to depend on, now with names that fit more closely and clearly within our existing Erysweet portfolio,” said Thom King, president/CEO of Steviva Ingredients.
These ingredients join Erysweet erythritol, a mildly sweet polyol for use as a bulking agent or sweetener in low viscosity sauces and beverages, and Erysweet erythritol 100 mesh fine powder, a solution designed for formulations in which mild sweetness and bulk are demanded in fine granulation.
“Erythritol has been used in the United States for more than a decade, with no health risks. Now, the European Union is accepting the ingredient as safe for use in reduced-sugar beverages,” added King. “This rebrand is just one way we’re enhancing our Erysweet portfolio to make it even easier for our customers to source the ingredients necessary to further innovation as it pertains to delicious, low-calorie beverages in the US and abroad.”
Erysweet+ is available in 25kg poly-lined boxes and 900kg super sacks. For more information and samples, please contact [email protected] or call 310-455-9876310-455-9876.
