Steviva Ingredients partners with farmers in Brazil to produce fully traceable, identity-preserved stevia extracts
BraziliaSweet® RA95 and BraziliaSweet® 95-60 deliver clean flavor, zero calories
PORTLAND, Oregon — In response to increased consumer interest in health and environmental consciousness, Steviva Ingredients, a global supplier of all-natural high-intensity sweeteners and custom sweetening solutions, has partnered with farmers in Brazil to produce BraziliaSweet® RA95 and BraziliaSweet® 95-60 stevia extracts.
The newest additions to the company’s portfolio of clean label sugar reduction products are harvested from ethically sourced, identity-preserved stevia plants that are cultivated in a single location in Brazil. The farming agreement, by which Steviva invests time and capital to support the involved farmers, builds upon Steviva’s mission of environmental sustainability and provides full traceability — as well as a reliable, ready supply of the premium stevia leaves that produce the most sought-after stevioside Rebaudioside A (Reb A).
Because concentration and purity of sweetening glycosides can vary immensely when stevia leaves are sourced globally, Steviva’s single-location sourcing ensures dependable, consistent flavor.
The natural, high-intensity, zero-calorie sweeteners are ideal for use in a variety of no-, low- or reduced-calorie beverages, fruit products, meal replacement bars, cereals, snacks, desserts, ice cream, confectionery products, jams and jellies.
BraziliaSweet RA95 has a more pronounced sweet technical effect. BraziliaSweet 95-60 is slightly less sweet and offers a more well-rounded flavor profile. Both are Halal, ISO 9001 and 14001, FSSC 22000 and Kosher Pareve certified; the sweeteners are available in 10-kg poly-lined bags. For more information and samples, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 310-455-9876.
