Hi nurdin, It was an article from Ingredientnetwork that I rememeber. Beginning of 2010 (at the earliest), in my mind this seemed like ages away but it's April already! Regulatory hurdles The topical examples of erythritol and, even more recently, rebaudioside A (reb A or rebiana) demonstrate that there is another front on which sweetener manufacturers have to fight: regulatory status and approval. Reb A and stevioside are the two key sweetener products from the plant Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni (stevia). Products of the plant have long been used in Latin America (where it originates) and the Far East. Last year saw reb A gain approval in Australasia and the US. But with regard to regulatory status, there is a chequered geography – as well as history – behind the plant. Almost a decade ago, the European Commission Committee on Food concluded that stevioside "is not acceptable as a sweetener on the presently available data". Now, regarding EU approval for new sweeteners, a spokesman for EFSA says: "Two applications have been received concerning stevia, but final opinions on these are not due until the beginning of 2010 at the earliest." These regulatory discrepancies are not uncommon for new sweeteners, and highlight some of the challenges facing end users in the international food industry. In this case, it may delay international roll-out of products for Coca-Cola and PepsiCo which, respectively, are using reb A products from Whole Earth (PureVia) and Cargill (Truvia). As Elizabeth Fay, director of public policy at Cargill, explains: "Around the world, stevia products vary widely." She adds, "The safety studies for Truvia rebiana do not open the market for other stevia-based sweeteners." Meanwhile, an ongoing re-evaluation of all food additives by EFSA includes sweeteners. With regard to timings, the spokesman will only say: "No firm deadlines have been fixed as yet for any particular sweeteners." In general terms, Pegg at LFI expects to see higher regulatory testing hurdles in future. "And given the huge cost of development, any new sweeteners will have to demonstrate additional benefits, as with sucralose's bake-stability," she suggests. According to Tate and Lyle, overall growth in the sweeteners market stands at 2-3% a year. Within this total, the changing status of certain ingredients may feed into more new product launches in given categories such as ice cream, chocolate or baked goods. Enduring concerns over sugar, improving sweetener systems and lower costs mean that both new and established products will continue to find enthusiastic users.

Hi nurdin, where did you get later this year from? I remember reading an article that indicated it would be much longer than this. I will try and find it.

I am convinced US investors are buying here...Reb-A and the huge media coverage of low calorie drinks is creating a lot of interest there

Excellent link there Foodcritic cheers....looks to me the stevia wheels are turning fast now. We need Pure to announce a few contracts now...but its more than likely that they are not allowed to by the customers due to commercial confidentiality.I know for a fact that they have won a contract with a major customer but the client wants to keep the deal under wraps for the time being :o)

Director purchase, 100k shares @ £1.92. £192k worth so no small amount. Reassuring that Mr Lai Hock Meng sees the good value at this level. http://fool.uk-wire.com/cgi-bin/articles/200904010700188897P.html

and a date for your diary... http://www.steviaworldforum.com/ Reassuring numbers on Stevia's Market Potential Shared by William Mitchell, CFO of PureCircle. There's a lot being said about Stevia, but little available in terms of Solid market figures and concrete projections. That's why we were so excited to discover this fantastic presentation by William Mitchell, CFO of PureCircle, made at the 2nd Agriprods Forum last year in November. Mr. Mitchell shared some ground breaking revelations on the market potential of Stevia that we thought to share with you. Here are some of the most relevant points from his presentation: Stevia will become a major global commodity. World demand for stevia leaves will exceed 6-8 Million metric tonnes a year in the next ten years. Rebaudioside A (Reb A), an ALL NATURAL zero-calorie sweetener derived from Stevia, can overtake chemical sweeteners in the sweetener markets, because consumers want 'natural' products. The markets for Reb A can touch US$10 Billion in a few short years! Reb A sweetener also has the potential to penetrate 20-25% of the sugar market. Stevia is an exciting cash crop that can promise more returns than coffee, tea and tobacco
