05 Jun 2017 --- Founded in 2016, Steviana Bioscience is now commercializing its global patented extraction, purification and crystallization processes to produce the worlds cleanest tasting Stevia products.  

With its roots from the Pharmaceutical industry, Steviana founder, Dr. Jian Liu, started developing high purity extraction technology for Natural pharmaceuticals.  Utilizing the basic concepts of the Pharma extraction technology, Steviana began to extract the high value Rebaudiosides in Stevia leaves for the food, beverage and nutraceutical industries.

Today Steviana is producing high purity Stevia - "Viána" extracts at its NEW facility in Suzhou, China, close to Shanghai. The Suzhou facility is producing all the key components of the Stevia Leaf and the entire lineup of Viána Stevia extracts; Reb A, Reb C, Reb D and the newest patent for the Co-Process of Reb AD95. This novel Co-Process patent for Reb AD yields a desired ratio of Reb A and Reb D which has NO bitterness or aftertaste, the major deterrent in expanding the usage of Stevia Reb A in more consumer product launches today.

Viána Reb D is the most sugar like Stevia extract component of the Stevia leaf with NO bitterness and Steviana is the only company producing commercial quantities of Viána Reb D for the food & beverage industry. The sweetener industry has begun the commercialization of Reb D & Reb M into the market. Of these two new Stevia extract ingredients, Reb D is being offered as a plant extract and Synbio processed and Reb M via enzyme conversion.  With many sensory evaluations, Viána Reb D and Viána Reb AD have excellent sugar like sweetness profiles, NO bitterness and NO calories to help reduce or eliminate sugar in your product formulations.

Steviana will be exhibiting and highlighting their “Beyond Sweetness” new technology and products at this year’s IFT, Las Vegas (June 25-28) and again at the Supply Side West show (September 25-29). The featured product will be a Green Tea with Honey and Lemon Flavor beverage highlighting Reb AD95.
