Wild Flavors orders 40 metric tons of enzyme-treated stevia products

Sunwin Stevia International, Inc., one of the top global providers of high quality stevia extracts including Rebaudioside A 98 and Rebaudioside 99, has received a major purchase order of 40 metric tons of enzyme-treated stevia products (valued at more than $3.2 million) for the calendar year of 2015 by Wild Flavors, Inc.

Enzyme-treated stevia is the most advanced stevioside product in the world and is used in the food and beverage industries. Stevia is a natural sweetener; however, it has a bitter, licorice-like aftertaste.

Enzyme treated stevia is obtained by adding glucose to stevia extracts using beta--glucosyltransferase. In addition, a specially treated stevia seed is required to grow special stevia leaf for such advanced product.

This new method can effectively decrease or eliminate the bitter aftertaste of natural stevia. Sunwin Stevia is the only company in the world that offers such advanced products on a commercial basis.
