In response to increased consumer interest in health and environmental consciousness, Steviva Ingredients 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 cultivated at one location in Brazil. Through a farming agreement, Steviva invests time and capital to support the involved farmers. In return, the global supplier of all-natural, high-intensity sweeteners has 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 program also builds upon Steviva's mission of environmental sustainability and full traceability.
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.
