GLG Life Tech Corporation, a global leader in the agricultural and commercial development of high-quality, zero-calorie, natural sweeteners, introduces GoZero™ Solutions.

This innovative portfolio provides unparalleled natural and Non-GMO zero-calorie sweetener options and proprietary formulations tailored to a customer’s specific calorie reduction needs.

The challenges to global food and beverage companies are well documented with respect to the need for reduced amounts of sugar in formulations. Global per capita sugar consumption peaked in the late 1990's. However, it has been declined ever since due to an increase in health awareness and prevalence of diet-related health conditions, such as diabetes.

Moreover, food and beverage manufacturers also have been challenged by government regulations and guidelines (such as sugar taxes in the US and Mexico) and new dietary guidelines limiting the amount of added sugar in foods. Meanwhile, consumers no longer are as willing to consume artificial sweeteners because of their general mistrust in synthetic chemical compounds.

In fact, consumers are increasingly looking to incorporate natural, plant-based ingredients in their diets. The movement of the market toward zero-calorie, natural sweeteners has placed immense pressure on marketing, R&D and procurement teams to reformulate to reduce sugar and artificial sweeteners in their products. However, the transition to stevia as a natural zero-calorie sweetener has proved challenging due to issues of aftertaste related to astringency and bitterness.

Things are about to change for the better. GLG is pleased to introduce its newest product line to global food and beverage companies. New GoZero™ Solutions to address all these challenges with going zero.

GLG's GoZero™ Solutions offer:

1.Largest portfolio containing the most complete set of zero-calorie, natural sweeteners including stevia, enzymatically modified stevia, monk fruit and bitter blockers.

"GLG has worked for many years with food and beverage companies and understands the importance of innovative solutions for our customers,” says Brian Meadows, president and CFO of GLG. “Everyone wants to enjoy the benefits of stevia; however, it has not been an easy path so far. We have also learned that one solution does not fit all product formulations and a portfolio that addresses this real issue for R&D Departments is required. With the design of our new GoZero™ Solutions product line we have developed a portfolio that works.”

He continues, “We now have an extensive portfolio and formulation library that can be accessed to meet every formulation challenge that a company faces. We also have the resources to support a customer in their product development process to shorten the timeframe and offer the benefits of our experience. It is exciting to see the satisfaction of our customers as we work with them to offer a wide variety of natural solutions that meet their calorie reduction and taste profile objectives and overcome the challenges of each individual market."

GoZero™ Solutions is the result of more than 15 years' research involving more than 60 agricultural scientists, product innovation and food application specialists, and food engineers. This concerted effort has allowed us to formulate a diverse product portfolio applicable to a wide range of food, beverage, and dietary supplement products that are cost-effective and superior in taste, flavor and quality.
