Probably the World's Best Stevia Refinery
Highest purity refining capability
Almendra's state-of-the-art refinery in Thailand was designed by scientists and engineers who know stevia inside out.
Our team has mastered the exacting production processes needed to consistently deliver to the quality expectations of its clients.
Impurities can cause taste deficiencies in Stevia. Almendra's
Steviose® 100 is made by a patented process which all but eliminates impurities, yielding the cleanest tasting Reb A on the market today.
Almendra's excellence in manufacturing is part of our commitment to a seamless supply chain experience. Warehouses in Europe, Asia and the USA offer greater order flexibility for clients.
A Revolutionary Stevia
Almendra has patented an innovative new method based on greenhouse photobiology technology for growing stevia at commercial scale year-around as a perennial rather than an annual crop.
Almendra is currently planning to implement the patented growing technology outside of China.
This will allow our clients to have an alternative sourced origin.
Taste Modulation System G™
An innovative new technology to enhance "mouthfeel" in sugar-reduced beverages
In 2019, Almendra filed for a series of patents for an innovative new technology to reduce sweetness linger and boost "mouthfeel" in sugar-reduced beverages.
Taste Modulation System G™ improves several taste aspects in beverages that use natural high potency sweeteners (HPS) such as stevia leaf extracts, but also those using aspartame, sucralose and other artificial HPS.
Taste Modulation System G™ has been found to improve sweetness onset and mitigate any lingering sweetness. At the same time this natural FEMA GRAS material improves mouthfeel.
Cost-effective and natural, our Taste Modulation System G™ offers an effective mechanism-of-action based tool for all beverage developers.
We create and manufacture botanically sourced, high purity ingredients that deliver consistent clean taste and allow a clean label that is attractive to consumers.
