Shanghai, China – Tate & Lyle, a global provider of specialty food ingredients and solutions, is pleased to announce that its natural, no-calorie sweetener TASTEVA™ Stevia Sweetener was awarded the Ringier Technology Innovation Award in the Food & Beverage Industry (Flavourings) at the 15th Asian Food Ingredients China Exhibition held in late June in Shanghai. This is the second award given to TASTEVATM Stevia Sweetener in June, following it being named Best Dairy Ingredient at the 2013 Dairy Innovation Awards in Lucerne, Switzerland.
