Sunwin International Neutraceuticals, Inc., one of the world's leading producers of all natural, zero calorie stevia, announced the development of Stevia Rebaudioside Reb A 98, one of the highest grade stevia extracts on the market today. Stevia Rebaudioside Reb A 98 will be branded within the stevia extract product line as "OnlySweet(TM) Reb A 98", and marketed and sold exclusively by Sunwin USA and WILD Flavors, Inc. ("WILD Flavors"). WILD Flavors is the strategic partner of Sunwin International. WILD Flavors will begin working with the OnlySweet(TM) Reb A 98 to incorporate its taste modification technologies that is expected to allow for stevia extract sales and natural sweetening solutions in a wider range of various food and beverage applications.
