Cargill has officially started production on EverSweet, a zero-calorie sweetener made with two of the best tasting sweet compounds found in the stevia leaf, Reb M and Reb D.

EverSweet, produced in partnership with Evolva, will look to satisfy consumer desire for healthier food choices without sacrificing taste. It can be used in beverages, dairy products, and many other applications.

“Cargill has set a new benchmark for sweetness without calories with our EverSweet sweetener,” says Andrew Ohmes, global stevia business leader for Cargill. “Our goal has always been to address our customers’ needs to make lower calorie products that taste great and are affordable to all.”

The sweetener is produced through a fermentation process that allows for large quantities of these most sought-after sweet compounds to be commercially produced in a more sustainable way.

“We are delighted that Cargill has started commercial production of EverSweet. We look forward to the next chapter in the exciting space of sweeteners,” says Evolva CEO Simon Waddington.
