Qingdao Siyuan Stevia International Trade, Co., Ltd
BRIEF INTRODUCTION OF STEVIA
Stevia is a kind of natural healthy sweetener and medical auxiliary agent extracted from stevia leaves, a plant of asteraceas herb. It is pure white, with good taste, no peculiar smell, stable in property, not easy to become moldy, and also easily soluble in water and alcohol, It is a kind of sweetener ever discoverd with the most similar taste to sucrose, and approved for use worldwide. Stevia is high in sweetness, Low in calorie, its sweetness is about 200-450 times to sucrose, but calories is only 1/300 times. It is widely used in food, beverage, medicine, cosmetic industry, wine, etc. at the cost of 30% of sucrose. Therefore, stevia is an ideal alternative of sucrose, honored as "the Third Source of Sweetener" internationally.
In addition, through a large number of drug experiments proved that the stevia glycoside non-toxic side effects, not only no carcinogens, safety performance is high, and contains 14 kinds of amino acids and more than 10 kinds of trace elements(iron, zinc, copper, cobalt, manganese, molybdenum, sulfur and fluorine, chromium, bromine, selenium, etc.). It is an ideal medical auxiliary agents.
We are certified to FDA/GRAS. US organic, ISO9001, ISO22000, HACCP, HALAL, KOSHER, BRC, etc.
Conventional Steviol Glycoside Series
1. TOTAL STEVIOL GLYCOSEDES

New products/New trends
Mass production of RD/RM has been started since 2017, and received favourable reputation. We will be focusing on the R&D of new components, breed improvement for mass production, and taste improvement on Rebaudioside series.
Lately, Reb-D has become a new component which is studied and applied into products, It has an unparalleled sweet taste comparing to traditional steviosides, and its aqueous solution tastes almost exactly the same as sugar solution. Because the content of Reb-d is quite lower in dry leaves, currently it tends to be used in high-end products. With the R&D of new stevia seedling, the future of Reb-d is very promising.
Although the sweetness of Reb-B is not high, It does generate a fine taste in different stevia-involved formulations; while mixing it with other stevia compounds, it inhibits the possible bitter taste and brings fascinating smell.
As a newly discovered steviol glycoside which is not included in JECFA Reb-M showed its superior taste compare to Reb-d in recent developing and testings, and it gains the favor of several leading brands of food and beverages.
