Highest-purity Stevia Available
Clean sweetness without bitter notes or aftertaste
Zero calorie stevia sweetener range made with a proprietary process.
Steviose is a family of natural leaf-sourced Stevia sweeteners, including Steviose 100 — the world’s highest purity rebaudioside A. It is viewed as the best tasting and commercially viable stevia available by leading FMCG and flavor companies.
Steviose 100, our flagship product, delivers clean sweetness without bitter notes or licorice aftertaste and is best suited for deep calorie reductions and demanding applications. It competes well with both ex-leaf and non-leaf rebaudioside M in beverages.
The product range also includes less specified grades to meet lower cost-in-use targets.
Steviose is leaf sourced, non-GMO, Kosher and Halal certified extract and complies with the JECFA specifications for stevia sweeteners.
Steviarome Natural Flavors
Enhances perceived sweetness, amplifies fruitiness
and enhances savory taste attributes
Steviarome is a range of natural flavors with modifying properties (FMPs) made from Stevia Rebaudiana B. (stevia) leaf extract. It was developed by Almendra to enhance, or modify, taste attributes of flavorings and foods to which they are added.
FMPs may not have, or impart, a specific characteristic flavor of their own, but can modify the flavor profile by intensifying, or reducing, specific flavor characteristics, masking off-notes, or bitterness, or changing the time onset and duration of the perception of specific aspects of the flavor profile.
Almendra has a global license to make and distribute Steviarome.
Depending on the type, Steviarome enhances perceived sweetness, amplifies fruitiness and savory taste attributes.
Steviarome is leaf sourced, non-GMO, Kosher and Halal certified.
Combine with Steviose 100, Steviose TSG 095 or Steviose TSG 100 for deeper sugar reduction.
Taste Modulation System G
Reduces sweetness linger and provides sugar-like moutheel sensation
Almendra will soon broaden into a wider complimentary specialty of natural and taste ingredients.
We've developed and patented specialized ingredients that can be used to address the consumer need for improved “mouthfeel” and reduced “sweetness linger” in calorie reduced beverages that we call System G™.
It does not contain stevia or monk fruit. This taste technology relies on specific combinations of minerals and is also free from table salt (NaCl). It is both FDA and FEMA GRAS.
Further information about System G™ is available in our recently published technical paper:
