A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11889852B2) discloses a Stevia untreated aqueous extract solution containing specific steviol glycosides extracted from selectively bred cultivars. The concentration of these glycosides, including RebD, RebE, RebN, and RebO, exceeds common relative concentrations, providing a unique composition. The patent also covers consumables incorporating this extract solution, offering a sucrose equivalence greater than 10% (w/v) when present in amounts ranging from 1 ppm to 10,000 ppm.

Furthermore, the consumables may include additional sweetener compounds such as sucrose, glucose, and various steviol glycosides, among others. These consumables, suitable for pharmaceutical, food, and beverage applications, can also contain flavor ingredients like vanillin, citrus, and almond. The extract solution's presence in the consumables is carefully controlled to ensure it remains below a threshold flavor recognition concentration, ranging from 0.5 ppm to 1000 ppm, to maintain the desired taste profile. Overall, the patent covers a range of consumables incorporating the unique Stevia extract solution, offering a novel approach to enhancing sweetness in various products while maintaining a balanced flavor profile.
