Stevia supplier Sweet Green Fields (SGF) has teamed up with Tate & Lyle to introduce ZOLESSE, a glucosylated stevia extract that can be labeled as a natural flavor.

ZOLESSE, which is considered generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the Flavor Extract Manufacturers Association (FEMA)*, modifies the taste of stevia extracts, which become less bitter and lingering, but can also enhance the sweetness of monk fruit and sugar, said Tate & Lyle, which says the flavor is available in the US, Mexico, Brazil, Philippines, Indonesia and anywhere that FEMA GRAS flavors are accepted.

 “ZOLESSE is a true formulator-friendly flavor solution​,” added Dr. Mel Jackson, SGF chief science officer.

It eases the concern of formulators who believe consumers may be sensitive to stevia products when reading ‘steviol glycosides’ or ‘stevia extracts’ on the label. Plus, ZOLESSE creates no application hurdle, since it has a negligible effect on the original taste of the products.”

* FEMA GRAS category 4845

  • Both firms are exhibiting at the IFT show this year, with Sweet Green Fields at booth #2419 and Tate & Lyle at booths # 5353 and #5557
