Hoping to reduce the harmful effects of sugar on the body is the MycoTechnology startup that offers consumers a natural sweetener made with fungus. The product is called ClearTaste and is made using plant-based ingredients to provide a healthier sweet alternative to chemically processed products.
The ClearTaste sugar alternative is made from fungus grown underground that is then turned into a powder. Despite the fungus being natural and savory, it actually provides an added sweet taste to the mouth as the powder blocks bitter tastebuds on the tongue. This naturally makes any food on the palette taste sweeter, without adding more sugar to it.
ClearTaste can be added to a variety of foods to naturally boost the sweet flavor profile.
