Thaumatin sweetener is a low-calorie sweetener and flavour
modifier. The protein is often used primarily for its
flavour-modifying properties and not exclusively as a sweetener.
The thaumatins were first found as a mixture of proteins isolated
from the katemfe fruit (Thaumatococcus daniellii Bennett) of west
Africa. Some proteins in the thaumatin family of sweeteners are
roughly 2000 times more potent than sugar. Although very sweet,
thaumatin's taste is markedly different from sugar's. The sweetness
of thaumatin builds very slowly. Perception lasts a long time,
leaving a liquorice-like aftertaste at high usage levels.
Thaumatin is highly water soluble, stable to heating, and stable
under acidic conditions.
