PureCircle Granted Key Stevia Reb M Patent in China

Chicago, IL, Sept. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PureCircle (LSE: PURE), the world's leading producer and innovator of great-tasting stevia sweeteners for the global beverage and food industries, was recently granted a Chinese patent directed to its proprietary process for scaling up production of its flagship, next generation Reb M stevia leaf sweetener.

The company's proprietary process has enabled it to produce its next generation sweeteners in the significant and reliable quantities beverage and food companies require ? and to supply these ingredients cost effectively for its customers. These sweeteners work well in a broad range of no- and low-sugar added beverages and foods.

The Chinese patent is aligned with the Company's other global IP on Reb M production, and serves to further strengthen the company's position as the world's leading supplier of innovative stevia ingredients.

PureCircle has 194 patents granted, and approximately 350 patents pending, globally. Beyond patents, and further enhancing its broad-based intellectual property, the company has extensive trade secrets and know-how resulting from years of leading edge R&D and process optimization in the area of stevia ingredients.

Commenting on PureCircle's Innovation, CEO Magomet Malsagov noted:

"This new patent is a valuable addition to our intellectual property portfolio.  Our IP, including the hundreds of patents we hold and have applied for globally -- and the additional patents for which we shall apply -- reflect the strength and depth of our work with the stevia plant and our commitment to getting the most out of the stevia leaf."

All of PureCircle's stevia products begin with the stevia plant.  The Company works with farmers in Asia, Africa, Latin America and North America to grow and source its stevia plants. Noted one farmer in Africa who grows PureCircle stevia, "We support many family members, and they are all going to benefit from stevia."  In the U.S., PureCircle is working with farmers in North Carolina who formerly grew tobacco.  Planting stevia provides these farmers with a valuable new crop.
