As we remain dedicated to providing our customers with clean label ingredients, we’re glad to highlight our exclusive Stevia and Monk Fruit Blends as a unique, natural sweetening system. Stevia is typically 200-300 times sweeter than sucrose, normally known as your conventional tabletop sugar, while Monk Fruit is typically 200 times sweeter than sucrose. Erythritol is a perfect complement to both Stevia and Monk Fruit, as it curbs the bitter aftertaste associated with both of these sweeteners, while also highlighting the favorable sweet notes and enhancing the mouthfeel and texture of both sweeteners.
Stevia is a commonly used alternative to sugar, adding that sweet taste everyone loves, but without the use of sugar. Stevia blends are used to replace or reduce sugar in different applications where consumers are aiming to avoid the side effects of sugar. Common products that incorporate Stevia include drink mixes, smoothies, nutritional shakes, confections, baked goods, sauces, dressings or simply to sweeten coffee or tea.
Monk Fruit Extract is freely soluble in water, approximately 150-250 times sweeter than sucrose and up to 300 times sweeter than sugar. This extract is created by removing the seeds and skin of the Luo Han Guo fruit, crushing it and collecting the juice. This fruit extract contains zero calories and only takes a small amount to provide a lot of sweetness.
Both Stevia and Monk Fruit Extracts are proven to assist in controlling blood glucose levels, making it the ideal sweetener for people suffering from diabetes and other blood sugar ailments. Additionally, these blends are so low in caloric content that they are considered calorie-free, thus making them ideal for people on low-carb, keto and paleo diets.
When incorporating the use of Viachem’s blends, a significantly smaller amount is needed to achieve a higher sweetness level when compared to sugar. They also assist with blood sugar control, allowing consumers to achieve the desired sweetness without compromising their health.
