Tate & Lyle, a global provider of specialty food ingredients and solutions, is pleased to announce that its natural, no-calorie sweetener TASTEVA™ Stevia Sweetener was awarded the Ringier Technology Innovation Award in the Food & Beverage Industry (Flavourings) at the 15th Asian Food Ingredients China Exhibition held in late June in Shanghai. This is the second award given to TASTEVA Stevia Sweetener in June, following it being named Best Dairy Ingredient at the 2013 Dairy Innovation Awards in Lucerne, Switzerland.
TASTEVA Stevia Sweetener, a versatile, clean tasting sweetener, is easy to formulate with and has shown in tests to be preferred by consumers offering a superior taste profile over RebA 97 and other stevia products. TASTEVA Stevia Sweetener, which was launched in March earlier this year at the Food Ingredients China 2013, further enhances Tate & Lyle’s extensive sweetener portfolio which includes SPLENDA® Sucralose, PUREFRUIT Monk Fruit Extract and a wide range of nutritive sweeteners.
Philip Lin, marketing director, Asia Pacific for Tate & Lyle said: “Tate & Lyle is delighted to win this award and we are very grateful to Award organisers, Ringier and FoodBev Media, for their affirmation and support. TASTEVA Stevia Sweetener is an excellent addition to Tate & Lyle’s health and wellness offering and, when combined with our leading technical expertise and consumer research, enables us to develop practical ingredient solutions that meet the needs of our customers in China and across world.”
