E957 — пищевая добавка, антифламинг, подсластитель, усилитель вкуса: тауматин, thaumatin (Е957)

Thaumatin is a natural mixture of intensely sweet proteins (thaumatins) isolated from the arils of the katemfe fruit (Thaumatococcus danielli) native to west Africa. It produces an odourless cream coloured powder that is highly water-soluble, stable to heat and acidic conditions. It is considered to be a high potency non-caloric sweetener as it doesn't contribute carbohydrates, and is 3000 times sweeter than sucrose (sugar). It has a licorice-like taste with delayed onset and then lingers therefore is not used in many products and always in synergy with other artificial sweeteners such as Saccharin (masks its aftertaste at low levels), acesulfame K, and stevioside. Thaumatin is predominately used as a powerful flavour enhancer.
