Firmenich, the world’s largest privately-owned perfume and taste company, and Danish biological solution leader Novozymes, have launched a new jointly developed natural sugar reduction solution.
TasteGEM SWL with Saphera lactase enables up to 50% sugar reduction in yogurt and other dairy products without the use of sweeteners.
The patent-pending technology unlocks the naturally occurring sweetness of milk and bridges the sensorial gaps that arise when added sugar is removed.
TasteGEM SWL with Saphera lactase delivers a superior tasting product and enhanced eating experience with authentic sweetness and increased creaminess and the added benefit of lower lactose levels.
“We are seeing a significant shift, with consumers ranking reducing sugar as the #1 health consideration in their food and beverage choices,” said Emmanuel Butstraen, President of Flavors at Firmenich.
“Building on our industry leading, proprietary sugar reduction capabilities, we have joined forces with Novozymes, to develop uniquely optimised dairy solutions for our customers that are both delicious and nutritionally balanced.”
The solution is exclusively available from Firmenich in all major markets worldwide.
