The Non-Caloric Sweetener You Didn’t Know You Needed
Rebaudioside M, commonly referred to as Reb M, is the next big thing in non-caloric sweeteners. As a steviol glycoside—the sweet substance of the stevia plant (Stevia rebaudiana)—Reb M is preceded in the marketplace by Reb A. While Reb A contains only four glucose moieties, Reb M contains six; more glucose units mean more sweetness and less bitterness. Plus, Reb M has no bitter aftertaste, indicating that this sweetener is as close to a sugar-like taste as you can get from the stevia leaf.
This ingredient comes with significant benefits on top of its “just like sugar” taste. A stable shelf life, good synergy with other sweeteners, no GMOs and a clean sweetness profile are just a few of the characteristics Reb M can claim. As consumers become more health-conscious, zero-calorie sweetening agents are growing in popularity. Reb M satisfies cravings while supporting a healthy lifestyle. The fact that Reb M can be used in lower dosages than Reb A, for instance, means that you, our customers, are given more autonomy over how much you’re spending on specialty ingredients.
