Calorie-free sweetness, inspired by nature

Great-tasting, sustainable solutions for reducing sugar

A science-based solution

As consumers worldwide continue to watch their calorie intake and strive to live a healthier lifestyle, food and beverage manufacturers are in need of great-tasting, zero-calorie sweeteners to help them achieve these goals. To meet this demand, Avansya, a joint venture between Cargill and DSM, produces stevia sweeteners by fermentation. This gives consumers the calorie-free sweetness they love, and food and beverage manufacturers an even more scalable, sustainable and low cost-in-use solution than if these molecules were extracted from the stevia leaf.

A team effort

In 2018, Cargill and DSM, two global leaders in the food industry, joined forces to establish the Avansya joint venture and bring zero-calorie, great-tasting sweeteners to market faster and more effectively. This partnership combines DSM’s leading biotech know-how and fermentation expertise with Cargill’s global commercial footprint and application expertise in sweeteners, as well as its large-scale fermentation capacity, making sugar reduction a sustainable and affordable reality.

EVERSWEET™ Stevia Sweetener

EVERSWEET™ is a non-artificial, zero-calorie sweetener with a next generation clean taste profile and sugar-like sweetness. The new sweetener sustainably and cost-effectively brings to market the best tasting components of the stevia leaf - the steviol glycosides Reb M and Reb D - which constitute less than 0.1% of the leaf by weight. EVERSWEET’s next-generation clean taste profile is well suited for use in products such as yogurt, chocolate milk, soft drinks, cereals, bars, and confections, enabling up to 100% sugar reduction, depending on the application. 

Finding the sweet spot

Delivering the products and brands that consumers love, with significantly reduced calories, is no easy task. Sugar-reduction and reformulation in dairy, (alcoholic) beverages, cereals and bars, confectionary, and the flavor industry, calls for deep knowledge of each application, as well as a thorough understanding of taste preferences and trends. Through DSM and Cargill, we can offer unrivalled support to help brand owners find the winning sweet spot in any application.

Purpose-led

With EVERSWEET, we can enable food & beverage brands to provide consumers around the world with reduced- and zero-calorie options with no compromise on taste, and so help support good health and well-being in our societies.

Performance-driven

The market for high intensity sweeteners produced by fermentation is expected to exceed $3 billion by 2025. Avansya is well positioned to capitalize on the significant potential of this market.
