Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany found that steviol glycosides are not altered during the extraction and purification process to make high-purity stevia extract.
PureCircle has developed the first commercially viable stevia antioxidant product, providing food and beverage companies new access to health and wellness ingredients for their consumers.
PureCircle’s StarLeaf stevia extract contains over 20 times more sugar-like steviol glycoside content compared to standard stevia leaf varieties.
PureCircle’s facility expansion will enable increased stevia production for use by food and beverage companies.
Sweet is a taste that most people cannot give up, but with more consumers becoming health-conscious and demanding for foods with less or no sugar, manufacturers need to overcome this challenge and meet the demand with sugar alternatives. One possible solution is through stevia, which doubles as a functional ingredient. By PureCircle
