PureCircle Plans Sale of New Stevia Products: Protein, Fiber and Antioxidant Ingredients

CHICAGO, Dec 4 (Bernama) -- PureCircle (LSE: PURE), the world's leading producer and innovator of great-tasting stevia sweeteners, announces that, after extensive R&D, it has identified high content of proteins, soluble fibers and antioxidants in the stevia plant and plans to begin the commercial production and sale of these new stevia ingredients in the second half of 2019.  PureCircle has nearly 400 patents and patents pending covering its proprietary stevia technology.

As the world’s largest supplier of high-grade stevia sweeteners and flavors to the global beverage and food industries, PureCircle uses significant amounts of stevia in producing those ingredients.  This new development -- the production and sale of protein, fiber and antioxidants from stevia -- will enable PureCircle to utilize much more of each stevia leaf.  As such, the company will be able to make each leaf “work harder.”
