Stevia

Stevia Sweeteners

There is convincing evidence that high intakes of very calorific and energy-dense foods that are high in sugar specifically increases the risk of gaining weight and becoming overweight and obese which is a leading cause of poor health. Physical activity can help with weight management but to tackle obesity, targeting changes in diet is vital. That’s why consumers’ buying behavior has already shifted towards lower-calorie options.

The health and economic benefits of reducing the calorie content of foods and excess calorie consumption are incredibly significant. Reformulating product recipes (reducing sugar levels) can help consumers reduce excess calorie intakes. Because consumers are becoming more aware of calories and sugar and adopting a health-conscious attitude toward what they eat, businesses have already work on reformulating their products and developing new products with energy-reduced and no added sugar.

Our Products

The sweet-tasting components naturally found and scientifically called steviol glycosides in the stevia plant are extracted from the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana (Bertoni). Purified extracts of the sweet substances in the leaf of the stevia plant are considered to be generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Our broad range of steviol glycosides based on Rebaudioside content consists of Reb A, Reb D, and Reb M. With the steviol glycosides in our portfolio including varying proportions of Reb A (40, 60, 80, and 97%), Reb D (95%), and Reb M (80%), we are always ready to help you develop products with energy-reduced or zero-calorie as solutions to the needs of your industry.

Rebaudioside A (Reb A or RA) is the most commonly used steviol glycoside in the food and beverage industry. Reb A has a more pronounced taste than the other steviol glycosides and is one of the sweetest ones.

Reb D and Reb M are two of the minor steviol glycosides present in extremely low concentrations in the leaf. These are sweeter than other steviol glycosides, with a taste profile closer to sucrose. Reb D and M delivers a taste more like sugar than Reb A.
