PureCircle to Present Latest Updates on Stevia in India at IUFoST 2018


PureCircle (LSE: PURE), the world’s leading producer and innovator of great tasting, zero-calorie stevia sweeteners, will be presenting the latest in stevia research, and updates on local stevia initiatives underway in India at The International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST ) 2018 being held October 23-27, 2018 at the CIDCO Exhibition Centre in Mumbai.

PureCircle will be hosting a joint scientific session with Coca-Cola India on October 26th which will include presentations by PureCircle’s Group Vice President of Global Scientific and Regulatory Affairs Dr. Siddhartha Purkayastha and the Company’s Head of the South East Asia Region Navneet Singh. The presentations will cover stevia sustainability and recent agricultural development in India; advances in stevia science, technology and safety; and recent stevia innovations for the formulation of great tasting reduced/zero sugar foods and beverages.

Commenting on stevia’s sustainability and PureCircle’s vision for India, PureCircle Head of the South East Asia Region Navneet Singh stated:

“Stevia is a sustainable crop, which is in high demand by the global food and beverage industry. PureCircle is test-farming several locations in India with its Starleaf™ stevia variety, which contains more of the best-tasting stevia sweeteners than other stevia plant variants. India has the land, climatic condition, farming expertise and entrepreneurial spirit to contribute significantly to global demand of naturally-sourced, non-GMO stevia sweeteners.”

Inline with the Indian Prime Minister’s vision to double farmers’ income, PureCircle is exploring new farming partnerships in multiple locations across India. Establishing a local Indian stevia agronomy program exemplifies the Company’s commitment to traceability, and helping food and beverage companies launch new low to zero sugar added products with plant-based from farm to finished product.

PureCircle has announced plans to increase plantings of its Starleaf stevia variety to supply significantly more Reb M to global beverage and food companies. PureCircle sells a broad line of great-tasting, plant-based, zero-calorie stevia sweeteners and other stevia ingredients. PureCircle is playing a key supply role for beverage and food companies, as they seek to offer their consumers more low and zero-calorie products.

As the result of ongoing innovation, research and development work with stevia, to date PureCircle has been granted more than 100 stevia-related patents. These patents, plus more than 250 patents pending and other strong intellectual property — are directed to a wide range of stevia-related products and processes.

IUFoST will feature the latest advances in food safety, food security, regulations, innovations in food processing, food, science & technology and consumer preferences among other topics by food scientists and technologists from academia, government and industry.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
