A powdered variant of a sweetener claimed to offer no aftertaste is now available from Omega Ingredients.

MegaSweet can be individually tailored, and is suitable for a variety of products, including ice cream, breakfast cereals, tomato sauce, baked beans, biscuits and cakes, its maker claimed.

In some test cases, MegaSweet enabled a 30% reduction in a product’s sugar content, and in beverages a 50% cut in sugar could be achieved, Omega added.

“Since launching the liquid form earlier this year, we have been thrilled with the response from customers,”​ said Omega’s co-founder Steve Pearce.
