Caesarea’s Lampados International will launch Liteez, a next-generation sweetener, at the ISM Cologne sweets show next week.

This dual-purpose meringue kiss sweetener can melt in coffee, or as be enjoyed as an ultra-low calorie sweet treat.

This new sweetener delivery system, shaped like a meringue, is egg-free, sugar-free and vegan. Two Liteezes contain about two calories instead of 20 calories in one teaspoon of table sugar.

“The idea was to craft a whole new concept for a healthier, tastier and indulgent sweetener – to simply create a new experience for coffee and tea or as a casual snack,” said Noam Kaplan, Lampados’s CEO.

This patent-pending vegan meringue kiss is a plant-based snack, free from allergens such as eggs, gluten, lactose or nuts, and contains only six simple ingredients.

“Many consumers crave something sweet both in and with their coffee,” he said. “Our new kiss fulfills both needs for a delicious, lowcal sweetener or as an indulgent dessert, without compromising on taste and while helping with weight management.”

“The real challenge was to create a tasty meringue kiss without eggs or sugar – two common indispensable ingredients for making a baked meringue, and that provide its texture, shape and taste,” explained Kaplan. “In Liteez, the fibers create the texture, yet it is stable and crunchy with great flavor.”

Liteez was developed in collaboration with Shefayim’s Practical Innovation, , an award-winning global innovation company. “Our mission was to help a traditional sweetener company make a completely novel product that takes the concept of sweet indulgence to a unique level,” said Tal Laizer, CEO of Practical Innovation. “This is not just a new sweetener but an entirely new look and feel – a complete 3D flavor experience.”
