Oubli Fruit Sweet Protein Granted FDA Approval In The US

Oobli, producer of sweet protein and low-sugar alternative products, has been granted FDA approval for its Oubli Fruit Sweet Protein as a sweetener for food and beverages. Oobli is a global leader in the use of sweet protein in its healthy sugar alternatives.

The new product recently received a 'No Questions' letter from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which opens the door for the food ingredient to be used in consumer products.

"Oobli is changing the future of sweetness through the use of sweet proteins as a replacement for traditional cane sugar and other alternative sweeteners like aspartame, sucralose, stevia and erythritol," said Jason Ryder, Oobli Founder & CTO, and Adjunct Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at University of California Berkeley. "The Oubli Fruit Sweet Protein is one of several sweet proteins that is derived from fruits primarily found in West Africa and other equatorial environments. Sweet proteins are a class of proteins that deliver a sugar-like sweetness but don't affect blood sugar, insulin or the gut microbiome."

Oobli is the first company to receive the "No questions" letter from the FDA for use of the Oubli Fruit Sweet Protein as a food ingredient. The company's brand name and sweet protein platform "Oobli'' was inspired by West African villagers who originally described the Oubli Fruit as being, "So sweet it makes children forget their mother's milk."

Oobli sampled its line of craft-brewed, low-sugar Sweet Teas, as well as its Dark and Milk Chocolates featuring the Oubli Fruit Sweet Protein, at the Future Food-Tech Conference in San Francisco last week.

Oobli has reimagined sweetness by unlocking the power of sweet proteins in place of sugar. Leveraging its proprietary fermentation process, Oobli uses tiny plant-based sweet proteins that keep blood sugar at bay and add healthy, gut-friendly sweetness to food and beverages.
