Bestevia Reb-M

The new sweet taste of sugar reduction

“Reduced sugar” isn’t new—but reducing more sugar than ever before while delivering clean sweetness is big news. The solution: BESTEVIA™ Reb-M stevia sweetener, a high-purity, next-generation stevia sweetener launched by SweeGen.

BESTEVIA™ Reb-M stevia sweetener is 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar. The process starts with the leaf of the stevia plant and results in a 95% pure Reb-M stevia sweetener with significantly less bitterness and aftertaste compared to conventional stevia sweeteners. This enables you to achieve levels of sugar reduction that were impossible or unpalatable until now.

BESTEVIA™ Reb-M stevia sweetener is approved in the U.S. and Canada, and it will soon be approved in other countries. The sweetener you—and consumers—have been waiting for is here.

WHERE BETTER TASTE COMES FROM

BESTEVIA™ Reb-M stevia sweetener is unlike any other on the market. We start with the extract obtained from the leaves of the stevia plant and use a proprietary technology to deliver a breakthrough sweetener with less bitter aftertaste to mask. With zero calories and a taste that’s the closest thing to sugar, BESTEVIA™ Reb-M stevia sweetener offers the best of both worlds to consumers—and to your products.

PERFECT FOR SUGAR REDUCTION IN BEVERAGES, DAIRY, BAKERY AND MORE

Testing by our sweetness experts shows that with BESTEVIA™ Reb-M stevia sweetener, beverages can achieve more than 70% sugar reduction without compromising taste. And our sensory mapping proves that this new Reb-M stevia sweetener produces a sweetness much closer to that of sugar compared to Reb A.

Innovation

Innovation

We produce BESTEVIA™ Reb-M through the use of our patent granted and pending processes and methods. We also have a licensing arrangement that allows us to produce Reb-M through our own unique and proprietary pathway. This pathway has also led us to the production of other steviol glycosides. Each of these new molecules offers a different sweetness profile and each has unique characteristics in terms of taste, mouthfeel and solubility, making them ready for use in new and different applications.

Here is a list of only a few of the steviol glycosides that we plan to produce in the future:

• Reb E
• Reb V
• Reb W
