Cargill, Evolva partnership for biobased stevia sweetener reaches new technical milestone

December 27, 2015 |

In Switzerland, Evolva has achieved “another technical milestone” in its partnership with Cargill, Inc. relating to the commercialization of EverSweet, a next-generation, zero-calorie stevia sweetener. Reaching this milestone triggers the payment of USD 0.5 million by Cargill to Evolva, the company said, although the nature of the milestone was not disclosed. The company added that negotiations are continuing on a commercialization agreement with Cargill.

About the product? EverSweet is made with sweetness components found in the stevia leaf — Reb M and Reb D, for “better sweetness intensity, faster sweetness onset and improved sweetness quality – without the bitterness or off-note aftertaste common with other stevia sweeteners,” the company notes. Evolva also produces resveratrol, vanillin, nootkatone and saffron.
