What is stevia Rebaudioside D?
Stevia Glycosides Reb D is a next-generation, calorie-free stevia sweetener. The clean sweetness, coupled with the lack of bitter aftertaste that is typically associated with stevia sweeteners, enables formulators to replace up to 100% sugar in their product design using a naturally based stevia sweetener.
Reb D has a cleaner taste than traditional stevia sweeteners, and sensory mapping shows that Reb D has a sweetness time intensity closer to sucrose than other stevia products.
What are the differences between rebaudioside A and D?
Both Stevia Reb D and RA (Reb A) are natural sweeteners derived from the Stevia rebaudiana plant, and they are both used as sugar substitutes in food and beverages.
While both Reb D and Reb A are considered safe and have a similar level of sweetness, Reb D is often preferred over Reb A by some consumers and food manufacturers for a few reasons:
- Taste profile: Reb D has a more sugar-like taste profile with less bitterness compared to Reb A, which can sometimes have a slightly bitter or licorice-like aftertaste.
- Cost: Reb A is the most abundant steviol glycoside found in the Stevia plant and is therefore easier and cheaper to produce than Reb D, which is present in smaller amounts. While the successful application of enzymatic technology has greatly reduced the production cost of Reb D.
Is stevia safe to consume?
YES. High-purity steviol glycosides are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS). And leading global health authorities such as the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) have concluded that high-purity steviol glycosides are safe for consumption within the acceptable daily intake (ADI)
