PureCircle, a leading producer of high-purity stevia ingredients, will receive a United States patent application pertaining to the use of Rebaudioside M (Reb M) in beverage applications. The Reb M product patent reflects PureCircle’s development of naturally sourced, superior-tasting stevia leaf extracts for food and beverage products.

The company, together with its global partner and co-owner of the patent, has further sought international protection of this intellectual property.

“Our new Reb M product patent is the latest of more than 60 other granted patents across our portfolio of stevia ingredients,” said Dr Avetik Markosyan, vice president, R&D and Process Development at PureCircle.

“Combined with investments in supply chain and traditional plant breeding programs, this demonstrates the viability of stevia from natural sources as the next mainstream sweetener in food and beverage products globally,” said Magomet Malsagov, CEO.
