LATESTLaunches The newest fnished products on the market. Stevia Jams Te new "lett frå naturen" ("light from nature") product line from Lerum Fabrikker (Sogndal, Norway) is a reduced sugar product range of jams and juices. Tey don't sacrifce taste, thanks to the use of Optesse HPS, a stevia sweetener from Sweet Green Fields (Bellingham, WA). Optesse HPS consists of purifed Rebaudioside A, which was created for use in drink and baked good formulations that contain 33–50% sugar and fructose. Optesse HPS products are produced using the company's patented Fast Precipitation Process that quickly extracts stevia glycosides. Tree products from Lerum Fabrikker's line of dilutable fruit drinks and jams—strawberry jam, raspberry jam and apple-pear juice concentrate—were named "remarkable" products and awarded two golden stars at the annual iTQi Superior Taste Awards held in Brussels, Belgium.
