Global stevia producer PureCircle has completed a $42 million expansion of its stevia plant in Malaysia.

The expansion will enable PureCircle to double its production capacity, focusing on more efficient extraction and processing from sustainably grown stevia leaf and purification for its next generation of stevia ingredients.

Innovations that have been incorporated into the new facilities include a dedicated line for PureCircle’s Zeta Family ingredients, which comprise sugar-like steviol glycosides such as Reb M and Reb D and allow for the deepest calorie reductions by food and beverage companies.

The fully automated expansion in Enstek, Malaysia, will bring the employment at the facility to almost 600 people.
