Ingredion Incorporated, a leading global provider of ingredient solutions to diversified industries, announced the Singapore Food Agency added Reb M Stevia leaf sweetener to the list of permitted food additives.
Reb M is a non-caloric stevia sweetener that provides sweetness with a clean, sugar-like taste and enables food and beverage manufacturers to reduce sugar, without sacrificing taste.
Reb M stevia leaf sweetener is a non-caloric, high-purity stevia sweetener with a clean, sugar-like taste, without the bitterness associated with some stevia sweeteners. The unique production process starts with the stevia leaf and uses a patented bioconversion process to achieve high quantities of Reb M, economically unattainable from traditional stevia extraction methods. Reb M was commercialised in 2017, achieved Non-GMO Project verification, and has been approved in many regions around the world.
