Twinsweet makes vitamins sweet

DSM Coating Resins : 12 May, 2005  (New Product)
Persuading young children to swallow anything that's good for them can be quite a challenge. Vitamin supplements should now slip down a little easier, however, with the launch of chewable banana-flavoured tablets incorporating the high intensity sweetener Twinsweet from Holland Sweetener Company. The tablets, manufactured by Viatris and marketed in the Netherlands under the Dagravit Junior brand, contain Twinsweet which masks the unpleasant taste of certain vitamins. Faced with a deliciously fruity, sweet-tasting tablet, youngsters are less likely to refuse their daily dose.
Persuading young children to swallow anything that's good for them can be quite a challenge. Vitamin supplements should now slip down a little easier, however, with the launch of chewable banana-flavoured tablets incorporating the high intensity sweetener Twinsweet from Holland Sweetener Company. The tablets, manufactured by Viatris and marketed in the Netherlands under the Dagravit Junior brand, contain Twinsweet which masks the unpleasant taste of certain vitamins. Faced with a deliciously fruity, sweet-tasting tablet, youngsters are less likely to refuse their daily dose.

Delivery via chewy vitamin tablets marks a first for Twinsweet which has already found wide success as a sweetener in chewing gum and other confectionery applications. Twinsweet is a unique blend of aspartame and acesulfame-K which are linked at the molecular level as an ionic salt. This means it has excellent stability in both food and pharmaceutical applications, resulting in intense initial and long-lasting sweetness. Twinsweet is not hygroscopic and dissolves quickly.

Twinsweet has been approved in the USA under existing regulations governing the two components aspartame and acesulfame-K. In the EU, it is included under the EU Sweetener Directive and labelled as E962 or salt of aspartame-acesulfame.

Twinsweet is manufactured by Holland Sweetener in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practice as applied in the food and pharmaceutical industries. All Twinsweet grades from Holland Sweetener Company comply with US Pharmacopeia National Formulary standards.

Holland Sweetener Company has a reputation for delivering safe and reliable supply. The company celebrates its 20th year of aspartame production in 2005, and also pioneered the use of sweetener blends to improve taste perception. Quality and purity are hallmarks of Holland Sweetener Company's product range and the company has had ISO 9001 certification since 1991.
