I just noticed this item on Wisdom Natural Brands’ SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener via The Gourmet Retailer:
Wisdom Natural Brands’ SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener was the overall winner of the 2010-2011 Annual Global Stevia Products Award by the International Society of Antioxidants in Nutrition and Health (ISANH) based on taste performance, advancement in ingredient science, and positive environmental and social impact. James May, SweetLeaf Stevia founder and president, was presented with the award at the Sugar & Salt Reduction Strategies Conference in St. Julian, Malta.
Dr. Marvin Edeas, President and Founder of ISANH, presented this year’s Global Stevia Products Award to SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener and the SweetLeaf range of products for their unique proprietary use of nano membrane technology and water to produce a natural extract with customizable glycoside balances tailored to achieve individual customer’s application requirements.
According to the press release on this, at the SweetLeaf site:
The International Society of Antioxidants in Nutrition and Health is a prestigious non-profit group of scientists with a particular interest in the health functions of natural ingredients. The society and its founder have advised many global organizations regarding the selection of ingredients in their products. Recognizing that taste is a key component of acceptability in a food ingredient or product, the ISANH awards companies that successfully combine health awareness and taste in their products.
I’ve never tried Wisdom Natural Brands’ SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener. But, I am trying to use stevia-based sugar substitutes on a more regular basis. So, perhaps it’s time for me to check this one out?
