Evolva gets European stevia patent

stevia-better-white-sugarEvolva has been granted a patent in respect of stevia-sweeteners made possible through the introduction of yeast fermentation-derived steviol glycosides by the European Patent Office.

At the heart of this enabling IP lies what the company describes as a novel technique for converting rebaudioside A (Reb A) to what it claims is the best tasting, and as a result most commercially relevant, rebaudioside D (Reb D) and rebaudioside M (Reb M) ingredients through fermentation.

Evolva says it was the first company to discover the enzymes capable of carrying out the key unknown steps in the Reb A and Reb D biosynthesis pathways, and notes that this discovery enables the production of these steviol glycosides through bioprocessing, solving the taste and cost conundrum of stevia sweeteners that Evolva says has limited their broader commercial use.

Evolva currently has 54 patents pending around the world related to yeast fermentation-derived steviol glycosides. With the addition of this most recent patent, Evolva says it now has four commercially relevant stevia sweetener patents granted.
