DSM Food Specialties B.V. Key Developments

DSM Announces Fermentation-Based Sweetener Platform

DSM announced at the International Food Technology Expo in New Orleans that it is well on its way to build a high intensity sweetener platform based on fermentation. DSM, with over 100 years' experience in fermentation technology, stated that as the global consumption of Stevia as a sweetener is rapidly growing, it's time for the introduction of steviol glycosides produced through fermentation, a sustainable, efficient and cost effective process to meet market growth. DSM's sweetener platform will have the innovation power to provide a range of stevia molecules and similar sweeteners based on evolving market demands. Steviol glycosides are the sweet-tasting molecules present in Stevia leaves. Producing steviol glycosides via fermentation processes has several advantages, it can be produced anywhere in the world very efficiently and the process utilizes fewer raw materials, requires less arable land and consumes less water. Further, it offers food and beverage producers the customization to adjust the taste and calorie content they want to differentiate in their markets. This is increasingly important as consumers desire to enjoy great, sweet-tasting foods that are low in calories and have a negligible effect on glucose levels in the body.
