MycoTechnology Teams with Nascent Health Sciences on Bitter-Free Stevia

April 29, 2015

www.mycotechcorp.com and Nascent Health Sciences have reached an agreement to manufacture and sell MycoZyme processed stevia. MycoTechnology's innovative process uses mushrooms to remove the bitter metallic after-taste from the plant-based sweetener stevia. Nascent's high quality SoPure stevia extract will provide the base for the new technology with uninterrupted supply.

Sugar and artificial sweeteners have been on a decline in recent years due to concerns around its affect on people's health. As a result, consumers are seeking zero calorie sweeteners that come from all natural sources. However, until recently, the major challenge with formulating new products with stevia has been its unique aftertaste. Using MycoTechnology's all-natural, non-GMO and chemical-free process on stevia, opens up new opportunities for product development that meets consumer demands.

Under the agreement, Nascent has the right to incorporate MycoZyme into the extraction process at its manufacturing facility with an option to process at MycoTechnology's Denver facility. The non-bitter stevia has immediate availability worldwide.
