Stevia-based sweeteners

Cargill’s new ViaTech line of Stevia-based sweeteners enables food and beverage manufacturers to achieve optimal sweetness and significant sugar reduction. Part of what sets the ViaTech portfolio apart from previous Stevia-based sweeteners, according to the company, is the use of Cargill’s proprietary taste prediction model, which leads to clean sweetness in even some of the most difficult-to-perfect zero-calorie and reduced-calorie food and beverage formulations. The new portfolio also offers food and beverage manufacturers solutions that are commercially viable from a cost-in-use perspective.

Food-coloring method

Barry Callebaut’s IBC brand, which specializes in color and printing technology for food applications, launches Power Flowers, a revolutionary method for coloring chocolate, fillings and compound chocolate. Made from tempered cocoa butter and 40% coloring agents, the product enables food professionals to make colorfully personalized creations by combining the four Power Flowers (red, yellow, blue and white) and applying the resulting shade to the fat-based product of their choice. Because of their concentrated formula (40% pigment), a few Power Flowers are enough to color 400 g. of chocolate. Due to the product’s simple and clean dosing, food professionals can achieve the same color results every time.
