Nature based proprietary process
Our process begins with the extraction of naturally occurring sweet compounds, called Steviol Glycosides, from Stevia leaves. Enzymes are used to increase the amount of the preferred, best tasting components, which are then isolated and purified. The molecules produced (Reb-M, Reb-D or any other targeted steviol glycoside) are identical to those found in nature, as confirmed using isotopic analytical methods. The result is great tasting, next generation sweeteners for use food and beverage products which delight the global consumer.
Environmentally friendly and sustainable stevia technology
We start our process with sustainably sourced stevia leaves and enzymes and, through our bioconversion technology, produce a range of stevia sweeteners with assured quality, regulatory compliance and competitive prices. Plus, we support thousands of farmers by utilizing their stevia leaves. Our goal is to combine the best of what nature offers for enhanced results – and to maintain the integrity of the original components, ensuring sustainable production and regulatory compliance.

Our Intellectual Property
Our exclusive license agreement in the sweetener space with R&D powerhouse CONAGEN (www.conagen-inc.com) allows us to always be a step ahead of the competition. Conagen is based in Boston, MA and employs some of the best scientists from MIT, Harvard and other world renowned universities. The research and development teams specialize in strain development and scale up for commercial use.
Our exclusive licensing agreement allows us to produce other steviol glycosides, that are naturally found in the stevia leaf. Each molecule offers different characteristics like taste, mouthfeel and solubility.
With many issued and pending patents, along with many trade secrets, we have formed a solid foundation for the commercial production of next generation sweeteners.
