Thaumatin Powder

Thaumatin is a natural sweetener that is used to sweeten up a variety of foods and drinks. It is sourced from the katemfe fruit, Thaumatococcus daniellii, which is found in the West African rainforests. The fruit is a red/orange colour, and contains 1-3 black seeds which are surrounded by a gel like substance. The aril, which is the membranous sac, is what contains the thaumatin.

Thaumatin is considered a protein and not a carbohydrate, unlike a lot of other natural sweeteners, and contains 4 calories per gram. Its level of sweetness is rather potent in comparison to sugar and therefore only a tiny amount needs to be added when used to sweeten foods. It’s considered 2000-3000 times sweeter than sugar, but does not contribute calories to a diet.
