Corn Products International, Inc., Westchester, Ill., has set up a web site at www.enlitensweetener.com to explain the benefits of the Enliten high-intensity sweetener it offers. Morita Kagaku Kogyo Co., Ltd., Osaka, Japan, developed a stevia plant variety with a high Reb A content. Enliten is derived from that variety.
Last year Corn Products entered into a long-term agreement with the Japanese company for the exclusive license of its patented stevia strain, manufacturing technology and stevia production, along with global marketing and distribution rights.
