Key Market Trends

Stevia is the Largest as well as Fastest Growing Segment of Food Sweetener Market in Germany

In Germany, more than 100 companies are manufacturing products that contain steviol glycosides. All of these companies use the term stevia to promote the sweetening effect of food additive. The bulk sweetener market is predicted to experience very slow growth rate in Germany due to the replacement of these bulk sweeteners with natural and low-calorie sweeteners like stevia, this is due to the approval by both the United States and European regulators for the use of stevia sweetener, and the demand for stevia leaf is skyrocketing. Some of the key players in the market, like Cargill Inc., Ingredion Incorporated, and Organic Stevia GmbH hold the major share in the Germany stevia market. The only drawback of the stevia market is that its plant is far more expensive than artificial sweeteners including aspartame, saccharin and sucralose.
