Nutritional ingredients company DSM is building a high-intensity sweetener platform based on fermentation to meet the growing demand for more sustainable sweeteners.

DSM is introducing steviol glycosides produced through fermentation, in what it says is a sustainable, efficient and cost-effective process to meet market growth.

DSM says its sweetener platform will have the innovation power to provide a range of stevia molecules and similar sweeteners based on evolving market demands.

Producing steviol glycosides, the sweet-tasting molecules present in stevia leaves, via fermentation processes has several advantages, DSM says.

It can be produced anywhere in the world very efficiently and the process uses fewer raw materials, requires less arable land and consumes less water.
