Corn Products International highlighted the opening of its state-of-the-art stevia production facility during the 2011 Food Ingredients Europe (FIE) trade show in Paris, France.

Enliten high intensity sweetener was launched at FIE following the European Commission's adoption of the regulation permitting the sale and use of steviol glycosides as the company's global distribution has recently expanded. A new manufacturing facility in Balsa Nova, Brazil has been constructed to produce Enliten high-intensity sweetener, which complements Corn Products' robust portfolio with a naturally-based, zero calorie solution.

Enliten high-intensity sweetener's numerous nutritional and formulation advantages include, zero calorie, non-cariogenic, a clean taste with a balanced quality of sweetness, enhancing effect with other sweeteners, superior solubility, and high stability.
