As research begins to link obesity and diabetes with excessive sugar consumption, the market for naturally-derived sugar substitutes or intense sweeteners has grown and is projected to continue to grow. Two types of high-intensity sweeteners gaining consumer popularity have recently been submitted to the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for GRAS (generally recognized as safe) notices, these are stevia and monk fruit.
