8th World Convention on Stevia – June 4-5, 2018 – Berlin

Organised by the World Stevia Organisation (WSO), the 8th World Convention on Stevia will be held in Berlin on June 4-5, 2018. Stevia is currently considered as the ‘green gold’, as a natural sweetener used to reduce sugar and synthetic sweeteners. Moreover, Stevia as a natural and antioxidant ingredient can be used for the prevention of chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases.

Why a specific Conference dedicated to Food and Beverages Formulated with Stevia?

According to Professor Gerd Birkenmeier, President of the World Stevia Organisation (WSO): “Nowadays, consumers need a neutral taste adapted to their culture. During the previous editions of the convention, the main question remained unanswered was: ‘How to limit and hide the after-taste of Stevia in Food & Beverages?’. For the future, I’m afraid of the risk that consumers won’t accept Stevia formulated products if industrialists can’t anticipate and find an urgent solution for Stevia Taste. We have to react quickly to ensure the future of Stevia as natural sweetener.”

The main challenge of the 8th World Convention on Stevia and Food & Beverages is to find the perfect combination in terms of formulation and to determinate how to reach the perfect balance. The latest research, innovations and successful products formulated with Stevia will be presented at the event.

Stevia Tasteful Awards 2018

At the end of the conference, the attendees will be invited to taste and judge some Stevia Finish Products and Stevia Extracts in order to discern the Stevia Tasteful Awards 2018. Two categories will be awarded:

* Stevia Tasteful Award – Finish Product Category

* Stevia Tasteful Award – Extract Category.
