Icon Foods is focused on customer satisfaction. Our purpose is to deliver exceptional, clean label, all natural, healthy sweetening solutions. Natural sweeteners are intuitive to us. Helping food companies deliver innovative, naturally sweetened products is our duty. Knowing how to use sweeteners singly or synergistically to replace and/or reduce calories is instinctive, whether in bars, beverages, confections or desserts. We partner with food scientists to deliver cost-effective, innovative, great-tasting foods that will keep your customers coming back for more.
All sweeteners are not alike. Some are derived from the stevia plant, some from monk fruit, fructose, erythritol, xylitol, but that’s not their only commonality. Multiple compounds within the stevia leaves – steviol glycosides, monk fruit mogroside V – have characteristics ranging from sweet to bitter. Isolating the purest, best-tasting components in a controlled environment is half the challenge. The method used to extract these compounds significantly impacts flavor and quality. Sourcing, processing methods, and ratios of glycocides vary widely among suppliers.
