|Enter the 21st century
|Stevia got the favour of many countries and was reasearched and studies on the planting of stevia monomer, seperation and extraction of effective components, Biological fermentation production and production application.
|Stevia got promoted and applied in many fields all over the world. It was widely used in food, medicine and cosmetics.
Separation and extraction of each component of stevia came into the mass production.
As the characteristics of natural，healthy, safe, zero calorie, stevia got promoted rapidly in EU, USA and Japan.
|Research and development on the new technology of stevia crystallization, components separation and extraction, Enzyme treated stevia technology was introduced to China and achieved large-scale production.
|New technologies for asexual reproduction planting was introduced RA leaves , was promoted to plant in China.
China has developed its own technology for the separation and extraction of stevia and realized large-scale production in Jining, Shandong Province.
From then on, China entered the Great Development of Stevia and became the global stevia planting, processing, export base.
|Japan and Korea studied the enzyme treated stevia to solve the problem of bitter after taste
|Stevia was introduced to China, trial small-scale planting in Guangdong, Jiangsu and other areas , and in the south of the Yangtze River try large scale planting successfully.
|Stevia was introduced to Japan and started to plant. Stevia extraction and purification technology was studied and promoted to apply.
|French scientist successfully successfully seperated steviol glycosides from stevia leaves.
