We understand that you don’t just need a product, but healthy sweetness solutions with an excellent performance.

Analytical Services

SWT Stevia has more than a decade of experience in supporting food and beverage companies with the development of analytical and sensory techniques to fully characterize and assess products during the development phase and subsequent launch periods. We have the capacity to characterize the physical chemistry of your formulations as well as the capabilities to support you in understanding the detailed content of sweeteners and flavours used in your products.

We have led the development of HPLC and LC MS MS qualitative and quantitative methods for the characterisation of specific glycosides and adulterants. For these purposes, we have collaborated with external laboratories in China, The Netherlands and the United States Pharmacopeia, in order to provide globally recognized methodologies which allow for supervision and labelling transparency in the market.

Sensory Services

SWT Stevia has developed precise and specialized sensory characterization protocols of sweetened products formulated with mixtures of both natural and artificial sweeteners.

This is the result of a state-of-the-art R&D Project developed together with the Catholic University of Chile (Flavour and Aroma Center) and Wageningen University.

Our research has provided us with unmatched knowledge and execution in understanding the sensory panels that relate to sweetness. This includes several descriptors not included in traditional sweetness characterizations, but that are critical to the sweetness of Stevia. By achieving this, we have led research in understanding sweet and bitter receptor lines. We can guide the development of your products and validate the sensorial results along the process, by using:

  • Panels trained for sweetness, bitterness, liquorice and metallic flavour
  • Panels Time Intensity to generate the curves of sweetness that you need
  • Online assessment of sweetness profiles


We work together with companies and organizations to incorporate positive innovation within the field of food and beverages.

We understand that with each product there is an opportunity to improve the natural and healthy properties that every consumer challenge presents.

On the other hand, we do not believe that the concept of a natural, heathy sweetness and the impossible should ever sit in the same sentence. We are achievement driven and constantly innovate, week by week, creating new sugar-reduced and sugar-free taste platform applications that are cutting edge throughout the industry.

We believe in co-creation as this enables a truly dedicated and combined understanding from all stakeholders involved in the Project and it allows new specialty concepts to be created. This is a unique approach on which we pride ourselves.

We provide technical support at all times,to guarantee your confidence in our abilityand recommend only the best ingredients.
