In Japan, high-purity stevia extracts have been approved for use in food and beverages decades ago. In the past 5 years, the world's leading food safety and regulatory agencies have been positive about the application of purified stevia extracts in food and beverages, and believe that stevia extracts are a safe sweetener.

The above agencies include: Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), France AN-SES (National Food, Environmental and Labor Hygiene Agency), Australia New Zealand Food and Standards Administration (FSANZ), the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and recent The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

Preclinical and clinical studies have shown that the use of stevia extract is safe for the general population including diabetics, children and pregnant women, and people with unknown side effects or allergies.
