Global Stevia Market 2014 Report

Global Stevia Market 2014 Report

Background and report description

With ever-increasing scrutiny amongst consumers over the content of food and beverage items, manufacturers are increasingly exploring alternative sweeteners which will enable the reduction in the number of calories, without sacrificing taste.

Over the past few years, the high intensity natural sweetener stevia has enticed both consumers and manufacturers with its ‘natural’ provenance and near-zero caloric benefits. With sugar being increasingly frowned upon by society, and artificial sweeteners being viewed with suspicion by many, stevia has seen its profile rise at a rapid rate since the turn of the decade.
