Sweet Taste Research
Our natural sweet products discovery and development is focused on unique no- or low-calorie sweeteners and sweet flavor boosters. Senomyx has identified multiple novel plant-derived sweeteners that are more potent than Rebaudioside A, which is a significant step toward developing a potential new natural sweetener. Evaluations are on-going to further assess the commercial viability of these novel sweeteners. We continue to identify and test other promising sweeteners derived from plants.
We are also doing research to identify additional artificial ingredients that can boost the sweet taste of sugar or high fructose corn syrup with improved qualities.
