Answer Today’s High Sugar Reduction and Clean Label Concerns with 3rd Generation Stevia

Second-generation stevia extracts were all about high purity rebaudioside A—the higher the purity, the better the taste.  Farm-based, third-generation stevia extracts are the newer two- and three-way blends of Reb A, -B, -C, -D and -M for even more sugar-like taste, but at higher cost. Alternatively, fermentation or enzymology-based stevia may co-exist in the near future. Enzymatically modified stevia extracts are sweet taste enhancers that can be used as part of the “stacking” strategy for clean label sugar reduction.
