Not very much is known about this natural sweetener, it seems to be very much in the shadow of Brazzein. It was discovered and isolated in 1989. However it does not possess either the sweetness or the excellent taste of it's twin sweetener so it is likely to be ignored for some time. It may well become a by product of the production of Brazzein.
Conclusions and Summary:
Probably another useful natural sweetener. Likely to be many years before it emerges.
Taste: -------- Good
