Sunwin Stevia Sees Health Canada Approval Of Stevia For Use In Food And Beverages Opening A New Large Market

QUFU, China, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunwin Stevia International, Inc., "Sunwin Stevia" (OTC QB: SUWN), one of the top global providers of high quality stevia extracts including Rebaudioside A 98, announced today that it sees Health Canada's approval for the use of stevia in food and beverages on November 30, 2012 opening a new large market for Sunwin Stevia. Prior to this approval, stevia was available in Canada only within natural health product applications.

Stevia is a natural zero calorie sweetener and can be used by diabetics. This approval means that consumers across Canada will soon be able to enjoy a similar range of stevia sweetened products to those already available in other markets where stevia has already received government approval for use in the food and beverage industry such as the United States and the European Union.

Sunwin Stevia has been working with a number of Canadian companies seeking to incorporate stevia in the product development process in anticipation of Health Canada's approval. There has been a significant increase in interest potential projects using Sunwin's stevia over the last year since Health Canada has made steps forward in approving stevia for use within food and beverages. Sunwin Stevia believes that while numerous food and beverage companies have been proactively working with the ingredient prior to this notice, Health Canada's approval will provide the confidence required for many of these organizations to invest further in the R&D and formulation work to quickly begin to introduce stevia based products to the Canadian marketplace.

Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO of Sunwin Stevia International, stated, "Since 1996, Sunwin Stevia has been investing in stevia farming and production to be in the forefront of this industry.  This approval in Canada is another strong step forward for the stevia industry as it opens another large consumer market for food and beverages.  We have invested a great deal of capital in positioning Sunwin Stevia as a global leader with a technologically advanced processing capacity to service this growing industry and we anticipate further sustained growth for stevia in the food and beverage industry as more countries open their markets for this healthy great tasting sweetener."
