Food product developers have a wide array of sweetening options other than sucrose from which to choose. While they all have their pluses and minuses in replacing real sugar, the addition of a flavor can fill in profile gaps and help smooth out any rough edges.
David Michael’s Sweetness Advantage flavor has been formulated to work specifically with Advantame, Ajinomoto’s newest compound. When used together with Advantame, Sweetness Advantage fills the gap in up-front sweetness, masks some lingering aftertaste, and smoothes out the overall sweetness, bringing the product closer to that of sugar. Sweetness Advantage is a natural & artificial, non-characterizing flavor that works in applications where Advantame is approved for use, including non-alcoholic beverages, milk products and frozen dairy products. The use of Sweetness Advantage and Advantame allows for a reduction in calories without sacrificing taste. The combination may even show a cost savings over the use of a full sugar product.
