E960 — пищевая добавка, антифламинг, подсластитель, усилитель вкуса: стевиозид, stevioside (Е960)

Stevioside is a natural sweetener extracted from leaves of stevia rebaudiana bertoni plant to produce a white powder in pure form that is readily soluble in water and is heat and pH stable. Commercially it is available in powder or liquid form. It is considered to be non-caloric as it doesn't contribute calories or carbohydrates, and is 300 times sweeter than sucrose (sugar). It has a licorice-like taste that is bitter and lingers, and therefore is not used alone but in synergy with other artificial sweeteners. It is also used as a flavour modifier to suppress pungent flavours in pickles, dried seafood, fish, bean pastes and soy sauce, and as a flavour enhancer in fruit drinks.

Common Uses

Used as a tabletop sweetener, and in fruit, vegetable and nut products, fruit juices, carbonated beverages, cube sugars, sugar preserves and confectionery, sugarless chewing gum etc.
