In order to help meet this market opportunity we’re excited that EverSweet®*, our next-generation stevia sweetener, is coming to Europe and the UK, following a positive safety opinion by The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and UK Food Standards Agency (FSA). This means that this new zero-calorie, plant-based sweetener is expected to be authorized in the EU and in the UK in the course of 2024.
EverSweet® is inspired by nature. It brings to life the sweetest and cleanest tasting components of the stevia leaf (rebaudiosides M and D). With EverSweet®, you can make significant sugar reductions to your food or beverage formulations without compromising on taste.
What’s our secret? Our technology replicates the stevia leaf-based Reb M and D via fermentation.
Not only does EverSweet® offer great taste, it also helps to deliver on sustainability! An internal lifecycle analysis (LCA) study highlights improved environmental performance in key metrics such as carbon footprint, water use and land use impact for EverSweet® compared to production from leaf or bioconversion, or traditional sugar.**
*EverSweet® is a product of Avansya, a joint venture of dsm-firmenich and Cargill.
**Results are pending an external panel review for verification in accordance to the ISO14040/44 standard.
