ERLANGER, KY. — Wild Flavors Inc. has added OnlySweet stevia extracts and OnlySweet stevia blends to the company’s portfolio of taste modification technologies. The systems address mouthfeel, masking, sweet enhancement and blocking of bitterness in foods and beverages containing stevia extracts.
"Our customers have expressed great interest in stevia-based sweetening solutions," said Kevin Gavin, chief operating officer. "Wild Flavors’ taste modification technologies with our flavor and application development expertise enables us to create natural sweetening systems and blends that meet our customers’ expected needs for all-natural, sweetened products and still continue to exemplify great taste."
Earlier this year Erlanger-based Wild Flavors and Sunwin International Nutraceuticals, Inc., The People’s Republic of China, signed an agreement to sell, market and distribute Sunwin International’s stevia extracts and to formulate proprietary natural sweetening blends for food and beverage products. Sunwin International sells OnlySweet, a nutritional supplement, in the United States.
