Reduce/replace sugar naturally - ENLITEN® stevia



Enliten® high intensity sweetener is a naturally-based low-calorie sweetener obtained from the plant Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni, commonly known as stevia.
What is Stevia?
Stevia is a small shrub originally found in Paraguay and has been used for centuries by native Indians to sweeten their tea.
The stevia leaves contain a number of sweet components, called steviol glycosides, each with a particular taste profile and sweetness intensity.
Most stevia products found on the market today are rich in the most abundant component, called stevioside, that is often associated with a bitter and licorice taste.
Not all Stevia plants are created equal
More than 30 years of plant selection and breeding led to the development of the unique plant variety and production system from which Enliten® is obtained.
This patented strain contains very high levels of the best tasting component, known as Rebaudioside A, which offers a clean, sucrose-like taste profile, unlike the unpleasant aftertaste associated with other stevia products.

Enliten® is about 300 times sweeter than sugar. At the inclusion levels necessary to impart the desired sweetness, it does not add calories to the formulation.
