American sweetener company SweeGen has received approval from Peru’s General Directorate of Environmental Health (DIGESA) to sell its non-GMO Reb M and Reb D stevia leaf sweeteners in the country.

DIGESA issued a letter to SweeGen confirming its approval for the sale of two next-generation stevia sweeteners in the country.

Last year, SweeGen submitted documentation to DIGESA to review the composition and manufacturing process of non-GMO Reb M and Reb D stevia leaf sweeteners.

SweeGen natural sweetener business director Katharina Pueller said: “We are excited to introduce both of our non-GMO Reb M and Reb D stevia leaf sweeteners to food and beverage manufacturers in Peru.

“Our non-GMO stevia leaf sweeteners provide a solution that helps reduce sugar without sacrificing taste.”

“Consumer demand for zero-sugar and reduced sugar products is on the rise globally, and our non-GMO stevia leaf sweeteners provide a solution that helps reduce sugar without sacrificing taste.”

The company noted that its non-GMO Reb M and Reb D stevia leaf sweeteners can be used in a variety of applications such as bakery, nutritional food, confectionary, dairy and beverages.

Based in California, US, SweeGen is engaged in development, production and distribution of non-caloric sweeteners for the food, beverage and flavour industries.

Last month, SweeGen achieved the Non-GMO Project Verified status for its BESTEVIA Reb D stevia leaf sweetener.
