Wild and Sunwin announce self-affirmed stevia GRAS

17-Sep-2009

Wild Flavors and Sunwin International have announced self-affirmed GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status for their stevia-derived OnlySweet sweeteners.

 

Wild Flavors partnered with Sunwin International Neutraceuticals – which produces a stevia-derived tabletop sweetener as well as stevia extracts for the neutraceutical industry – to produce natural sweetening blends for food and beverages back in February.

 

The alliance started working on self-affirmed GRAS soon afterwards.

 

CEO of GRAS Associates Robert McQuate said: “Sunwin USA and WILD Flavors have done an excellent job in preparing high quality OnlySweet stevia extracts that have attained self-GRAS status. This collaboration has been successful in consistently ensuring high purity compositions that meet the international specifications detailed by JECFA that also fulfill FDA safety requirements.”
