Sweet Green Fields (SGF), a US based global producer of high purity stevia extracts, has confirmed that product patents have been granted in Australia and New Zealand for the company's new Rebaudioside-A (RA) product of 99% purity.
Dean Francis, chief executive officer of Sweet Green Fields, said: "We will continue to introduce new products based on purities of RA and steviol glycoside blends with superior value that only Sweet Green Fields can make.
"We have seen high promise in the ultra-pure RA products as food and beverage companies are increasingly looking for all-natural sweetener options that meet their taste and cost parameters with Sweet Green Fields continuing to provide an edge."
Sweet Green Fields was also granted process patents in Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and China for the company's exceptionally efficient RA extraction method.
