INDIANAPOLIS — Heartland Sweeteners L.L.C. has entered into a partnership with Ganeden Biotech, Inc., Cleveland, to produce a probiotic-enhanced sweetener. The final product will be a no-calorie, artificial sweetener that may be used in a variety of traditional sweetener applications, according to the companies.

"By partnering with Ganeden Biotech, we can produce a sweetener that not only helps foods and beverages taste great, but also provides health benefits," said Michael Servie, president of Heartland Sweeteners. "Consumers now have an alternative to yogurts and dairy drinks and can now strengthen their body’s defenses simply by adding this new product to their coffee, tea and baked goods."
