Hi Bobbi, I too think it's interesting that of 50k plants they name 1 in a PR, and create a PR for that 1 plant.
There has been a lot of talk surrounding STVF's fermentation process in recent months, and I am interested to learn more details on what exactly STVF found and how it may be superior to other stevia flavors in development and on the market.
The good thing about STVF is that they are a research company of a commodity that doesn't have widespread use in the soda and food industry. Large beverage companies especially are showing a sense of desperation to cut down on calories,but must not sacrifice any taste. We'll see what happens from here but my initial thoughts are that STVF found something even better than what's currently in the market and in development.
