Ocean Spray has announced a partnership with Amai Proteins in an effort to incorporate healthy, sweet proteins into the product portfolio.
Through joint development agreements, Ocean Spray and Amai Proteins plan to develop cranberry juice with at least a 40% sugar reduction, offering consumers more ways to incorporate the cranberry into a healthier lifestyle.
Amai Proteins’ sugar-reduction solution is a hyper-sweet protein that is thousands of times sweeter than sugar.
Through computational protein design, the company has redesigned sweet proteins to fit the requirements of the market including temperature and acid stability for better shelf-life, great taste and affordable cost.
The resulting designer proteins are 100% protein, and expected to be a healthy, tasty sweetening solution.
