The Inside Story on Stevia First Corp (OTCMKTS:STVF)

Stevia First Corp (OTCMKTS:STVF) continues to trade well just over $0.35 support levels. The stock recently popped after the Company published a pair of feature video interviews with CEO Mr. Robert Brooke.

Everyone remembers the EPIC run that STVF made in early 2012 shortly after the name change from =Legend Mining, Inc. The stock exploded from just over $0.50 to well over $3 a share on spectacular volume. Spectacular are wondering if STVF will move over $0.50 and do it again.

Stevia First Corp (OTCMKTS:STVF) is an agricultural biotechnology company based in California’s Central Valley growing region that is focused on the industrial scale production of stevia, the all-natural zero-calorie sweetener that is rapidly transforming the food and beverage industry.

The Company has assembled some of California’s brightest scientists and agronomists, and put into action a plan to rapidly increase the global supply of stevia – the perfect natural sweetener: the holy grail of sweeteners.

Indeed, the excitement on stevia is palpable and many predict it is destined to become the main street workhorse natural high potency sweetener on the market. Stevia is a sweetener and sugar substitute extracted from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana.

The active compounds of stevia are steviol glycosides, which have up to 150 times the sweetness of sugar is heat-stable, pH-stable, and not fermentable. These steviosides have a negligible effect on blood glucose, which makes stevia attractive to people on carbohydrate-controlled diets. Stevia’s taste has a slower onset and longer duration than that of sugar, and some of its extracts may have a bitter or licorice-like aftertaste at high concentrations.

Stevia operates in a total global sweetener market worth an estimated $58.3 billion in 2010; the market for all-natural, zero-calorie stevia sweeteners is expanding rapidly. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates stevia intake could eventually replace 20-30% of all dietary sweeteners.

In recent news STVF announced they have successfully developed novel fermentation methods to produce steviol, a key step in the production of all steviol glycosides, the sweet substances found naturally within the stevia plant. Upon commercialization, steviol glycosides will serve in the reduction of sugar consumption and aid for the prevention of metabolic disorders.

In related news, Stevia First has also recently developed a proprietary process that converts abundant precursor molecules found within the stevia leaf into high-purity Reb A, the best tasting of the more abundant steviol glycosides. This enzyme enhancement process could more than double the output of high-purity Reb A per acre of stevia leaf and the Company could use similar fermentation methods as described above for low-cost production of stevia enzymes within this process. Analogous fermentation methods have already been proven economical for ingredients critical to the food and beverage industry and their use is increasingly widespread around the globe.

Robert Brooke CEO said “We’re intent on rapidly increasing the global supply of stevia, and are enabling this through a variety of methods including biosynthesis and mechanized agriculture. The continued rise in health concerns along with increased occurrences of diabetes and obesity is expected to drive the demand and growth for sugar substitutes over the next six years, making this a very crucial time for what we have produced. This achievement is another demonstration of what our R&D team can accomplish in a very short period of time.”
