Latest stevia research published in Journal of Nutrition

July 24, 2018

Chicago, Illinois, July 24, 2018 - The Journal of Nutrition recently published a comprehensive review of the latest stevia science in its July 2018 issue. Authored by several eminent scientists including members of the PureCircle Stevia Institute (PCSI) advisory board, the article "Stevia Leaf to Stevia Sweetener: Exploring Its Science, Benefits, and Future Potential" details the current state of the science for stevia, stevia's safety and potential health benefits, as well as the potential for future research and applications.

As stevia adoption in global food and beverage products has increased nutritionist scientists, healthcare practitioners and consumers have shown a growing interest in stevia science and safety.

The article covers a broad spectrum of important topics related to stevia including metabolism, safety, dietary exposure, impact on blood glucose and insulin concentrations, energy intake and weight management, naturality and processing, taste and sensory properties, regulatory status, consumer insights and market trends.

The premier journal in its field, Journal of Nutrition is an official monthly publication of the American Society for Nutrition (ASN) and the first scientific journal created solely for the publication of nutrition research. It publishes peer-reviewed original research papers on experimental nutrition, critical reviews and proceedings from internationally recognized conferences.

This stevia article in its July issue is a review and proceedings of the stevia symposium held at the ASN's annual conference in 2017 led by the Global Stevia Institute, now known as the PureCircle Stevia Institute.

"The Journal of Nutrition is a fantastic platform to educate its readership on the latest research and findings related to stevia. Given the rising global concerns around obesity and diabetes continuing, stevia serves as an excellent tool for sugar and energy reduction, and an alternative for those looking for a plant-based solution," said Dr. Samuel, lead author and Director of PCSI. "PCSI's mission is to advance the science of stevia and educate all stakeholder communities globally. This publication is an important milestone for furthering this mission."

There are few musical moments more well-worn than the first four notes of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. But in this short, we find out that Beethoven might have made a last-ditch effort to keep his music from ever feeling familiar, to keep pushing his listeners to a kind of psychological limit. Big thanks to our Brooklyn Philharmonic musicians: Deborah Buck and Suzy Perelman on violin, Arash Amini on cello, and Ah Ling Neu on viola.
