IFT Fireside Chat. Sweet Proteins: Ultratia® Brazzein and the Future of Sugar Reduction Technologies
Learn more. At IFT Chicago, on July 12 at 12:30-1:30 pm CDT, hear from Sweegen’s Head of Global Innovation, Casey McCormick, as he discusses the latest commercial, technical and regulatory developments with the sweet protein brazzein, a nature-based high-intensity sweetener. Found sparingly in nature in the West African oubli fruit, brazzein is 500 to 2000 times sweeter than regular sugar. Participants will gain a better understanding of how brazzein can be used to create nature-based sweetener systems that achieve parity with artificial sweeteners in terms of sweetness intensity and quality as well as cost. The latest developments in other sweet proteins like thaumatin I and II will also be addressed.
