PureCircle lauched its newest set of stevia ingredients, the Zeta Family, that helps food and beverage product developers achieve the deepest level of sugar and calorie reduction.

The Zeta Family stevia ingredients are made with steviol glycosides with the most sugar-like taste, and provide the most sugar-like taste profile on the market for low-to-zero calorie products.

“Consumers have consistently been asking for naturally sweetened low-to-zero calorie products and the Zeta Family is the first set of stevia products to meet these needs,” said Jordi Ferre, PureCircle’s Chief Operating Officer. “This launch is a breakthrough for the stevia industry and a testament to our PureCircle Stevia Agronomy Program. Through breakthrough advances in traditional stevia plant breeding, we are now growing stevia varieties that contain over 20 times the amount of rare steviol glycosides versus other leaf available on the market. We are proud to advance our commitment to supporting thousands of stevia farmers and be the only company to offer these innovative ingredients to our customers.”

PureCircle says that the Zeta Family ingredients are the formulator’s best choice to get to deeper calorie reductions, providing statistically superior ratings in expert sensory taste tests compared to other steviol glycosides in low-to-no calorie formulations.

“Sweetening low to zero calorie beverages has been especially challenging for stevia,” said John Martin, PureCircle’s Global Director of Technical Development and Innovation. “Finding the right steviol glycosides with very high levels of sweetness without the negative attributes has been our goal for many years. Before only caloric or artificial sweeteners were able to achieve this sweetness level. Now we have a naturally-sourced option with the Zeta ingredients. At these deep levels of reductions, it is impressive to see the impact of these glycosides, delivering the clean, sweet taste with no bitterness that consumers want.”

PureCircle is one of the largest providers of natural sweeteners to the global food and beverage industry. Through its operating subsidiaries, PureCircle produces, markets, and distributes natural sweeteners and flavors, principally high-purity stevia products.
