What is thaumatin powder?
Thaumatin is a super sweet substance extracted from the nut skin of the natural plant katemfe (Thaurnatocuccusdanielli), which is a natural protein. The sweetness of Thaumatin is about 2000 times that of sucrose. Although it is very sweet, its sweetness is completely different from that of sugar, and its sweetness acts very slowly. The sweetness lasts for a long time, leaving a licorice-like aftertaste. Thaumatin is easily soluble in water, stable to heat, and stable under acidic conditions.
