Sweet Proteins: Ultratia® Brazzein and the Future of Sugar Reduction Technologies
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.
Viewers 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 are also addressed.
