Date:12/17/2008

New Natural Sweetener - Truvia(TM) Rebiana - Market Leader in New Sweetness Category

WAYZATA, Minn., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Cargill received official notification from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stating that the agency has no objection to the conclusion of an independent expert panel which reviewed research that rebaudioside A (rebiana), the identity in Truvia(TM) rebiana, is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for use as a general purpose sweetener.
