Lampados launches 3D stevia sweetener
Lampados International has launched Liteez, its new 3D stevia sweetener for hot drinks. This meringue-shaped kiss addresses the growing demand for sugar reduction in beverages.
The sweetener is plant-based and free from any allergens, including: eggs, gluten, lactose and nuts. It contains prebiotic fibres which build sweetness, act as a bulking agent and function as a nutraceutical.
Noam Kaplan, CEO of Lampados, comments, “Liteez, is much more than just another sweetener. It’s a fun, 3D, easy to use sugar replacer that doubles as a sweet treat. You can eat it as a treat when drinking tea or coffee or, if you need sweetness in the drink, just stir it right in. It will completely dissolve in about half a minute.
“While the Liteez sweetener delivery system can be formulated with different types of sweeteners, using stevia posed a challenge since the acidity and isoelectric point of the mixture changes completely relative to using other high-intensity sweeteners, such as sucralose.
“This is a true breakthrough, 3D solution for consumers seeking plant-based, low-calorie sweeteners,” concludes Kaplan.
