Benesweet® is a patented ingredient blend that sweetens like sugar yet is low in calories and glycemic load, making it a healthy alternative to sugar for your food applications.

Our food scientists are driven by our desire to make a difference in the battle against obesity, diabetes, and other health concerns. We developed Benesweet® to be delicious, low-calorie, low-carb and flexible in use.

INSPIRED BY AN APPLE

Benesweet® is scientifically noted to help better metabolize fat and enhance energy while sustaining healthy blood-sugar levels. Benesweet® is modeled after an apple, providing a source of sustenance low in calories and glycemic load while high in nutritional impact, and most importantly, taste.

It is, essentially, a sweetener that provides natural sweetness and could provide actual health benefits.

HOW SUGAR IS METABOLIZED

If not used as energy it converts into fat. Excess long-term consumption of high-sugar foods can present a high glycemic load to the body that can make people tired, stress their organs and increase the risk of diabetes and obesity.

HOW AN APPLE IS METABOLIZED

Contains a blend of  carbohydrates, fibers and bioactive botanical compounds to achieve natural sweetness. The fibers and botanicals enable the carbohydrates to safely and slowly release energy, minimizing the impact on blood sugar or body weight.

AVAILABLE IN FOUR SWEETENING INTENSITIES

BENESWEET ORIGINAL

As an almost direct swap-out for sugar, Benesweet™ Original enables you to quickly and easily create delicious product prototypes. It has 1/2 the calories of standard table sugar (sucrose) and 1/3 the glycemic load. Of the four Benesweet products, it provides the greatest amount of bulking.

INGREDIENTS: Xylitol, erythritol, isomaltulose, inulin (from chicory), natural flavors, proprietary botanical extract blend (goji berry, cinnamon, bitter melon, grape seed extract), luo han (monk fruit).
BENESWEET PLUS

This higher sweetening intensity (approx. 10X) allows you to provide more sweetening at a lower volume, resulting in less impact on your product’s ingredient declaration. With less than 20% the calories of standard table sugar, it is a flexible sweetener for applications that need a slightly higher sweetening intensity.

Approximately 10 times as sweet as sugar expressed on dry matter
INGREDIENTS: Xylitol, isomaltulose, inulin (from chicory), natural flavors, luo han (monk fruit), proprietary botanical extract blend (goji berry, cinnamon, bitter melon, grape seed extract).
BENESWEET ADVANCED

Our highest sweetening intensity (approx. 30X) enables you to achieve desired sweetness at the lowest volume, minimizing the impact on your ingredient statement while also being more cost effective. Sugar alcohols are not present in this product.
