Meet Brazzein. The novel, new-to-the-world, sweet-tasting protein found exclusively in the fruits of the West African Oubli plant.

What makes Brazzein the next-generation of sugar and artificial sweetener replacements?

It’s 500-2000 times sweeter than regular sugar. It’s calorie-free. And unlike typical proteins, Brazzein holds its structure intact no matter the heat or pH levels.

Plus, Brazzein interacts with your taste receptors in unique ways.

Unlike artificial, non-caloric sweeteners of the past, it doesn’t just deliver one dimensional sweetness. Brazzein actually expands and intensifies tastes like umami as well as sweetness.

When used as an ingredient in foods and beverages, Brazzein not only impacts sweet quality, it enhances other characteristic flavors – offering tremendous flavoring qualities beyond sweetness.

Sweet quality

Brazzein hits a different tongue receptor than ordinary non-caloric sweeteners. And it enables a higher quality of sweetness that amplifies flavor expression. The result: a more sugar-true taste experience.

Sweet Intensity

When used as part of a sweetener system, Brazzein can achieve a greater level of sweet intensity than with natural, non-caloric sweeteners alone.
