20 Aug 2012 --- Global flavour ingredients supplier, Treatt plc, has expanded its portfolio of innovative 100% natural distillates with two new TreattSweet options. TreattSweet Extra 9856 and TreattSweet Sparkling 9857 enable manufacturers to improve the sweet taste profile in an increasing number of flavour compositions and applications while continuing to deliver the key benefits of the original TreattSweet product.
Specifically developed to work in combination with high-intensity sweeteners such as Stevia, TreattSweet is a non-caloric blend of all-natural essences which smoothes out the sweetness profile and undesirable lingering characteristics associated with these ingredients. TreattSweet imparts a sweet aroma but this characteristic is not always compatible with other components of the flavour blend. TreattSweet Extra 9856 has been formulated to overcome this challenge, providing flavourists with a low odour alternative. Its subtle flavour and light, fruity notes mean it delivers less aroma intensity at levels of 100 ppm upwards. As a result, TreattSweet Extra 9856 is suitable for an even wider variety of flavour applications.
TreattSweet Sparkling 9857 tackles the issues associated with carbonation, acidulants and sugar in low-calorie beverages – all of which have a significant impact on flavour perception and sweetness. Offering a more intense flavour profile than TreattSweet Extra 9856, TreattSweet Sparkling 9857 ensures optimum Stevia performance in carbonated beverages at low pH and at reduced sugar levels (7º Brix or lower). Its recommended dosage also starts at 100 ppm.
Each new TreattSweet product has been developed using Treatt’s specialist technology which guarantees maximum flavour entrapment. They are both ‘water white’ making them particularly suitable for clear beverages but also for juices, waters, alcoholic drinks and dressings, plus dairy applications.
TreattSweet Extra and TreattSweet Sparkling are the latest additions to Treatt’s portfolio of natural distillates developed to help formulators create sweet flavour blends without the associated calories. Other products include Sugar Treattaromes 9806 and 9807, Honey Treattarome 9802 and Honey Treattarome 9804.
