WILD Flavors Inc and Sunwin International Neutraceuticals Inc, a worldwide supplier of stevia, have formed a partnership to sell, market and distribute Sunwin International stevia extracts and natural sweetening blends for food and beverage products. The partnership will work to obtain US FDA GRAS (generally recognised as safe) status for Sunwin's stevia extracts. Sunwin currently sells its stevia products as nutritional supplements in the US to food and beverage producers, as well as its own stevia blend tabletop sweetener, OnlySweet. The president of Sunwin's US subsidiary, Jeff Reynolds, commented: "Partnering with Wild will allow us to expand our global reach."
