Cargill launches EverSweet next-gen sweetener co-developed with Evolva

October 1, 2015 |

In Minnesota, Cargill announced the launch of EverSweet, “the great tasting, next-generation stevia sweetener” which the company co-developed with Evolva. EverSweet sweetener is made with the same sweetness found in the stevia leaf, Reb M and Reb D, and provides consumers the great taste they crave with better sweetness intensity, faster sweetness onset and improved sweetness quality – without the bitterness or off-note aftertaste common with other stevia sweeteners.  EverSweet next-generation sweetener is expected to be commercially available in 2016.

Because the stevia plant produces only trace amounts of these molecules, using Reb M and Reb D to produce a sweetener hasn’t been commercially or environmentally viable until now with fermentation.

“At a time when many consumers want to reduce sugar consumption and adopt healthier lifestyles, EverSweet sweetener offers a new, delicious choice for reduced and zero calorie food and beverages,” said David Henstrom, vice president for health ingredients, Cargill.

“We’ve been talking about our Reb M & Reb D sweetener for months, and we are excited to give people the opportunity to taste and see for themselves how good it is,” added Henstrom.
