Natural sweetening output on the rise

The Pyongyang Stevia Processing Factory increases the output of natural sweetenings.

Decades ago, President Kim Il Sung assigned the Central Botanical Garden a task of acclimatizing a sugary plant of south origin. After being informed that scientists succeeded in fulfilling the task, he named the plant “August grass” (stevia) from the fact that it grows well in August and is gathered in the month.

“The cohesion process is most important in the output of stevia sugar. If we fail to observe technical demand in the process, the extraction rate of the stevia decreases,” said technical preparer O Ki Chol.

To this end, the factory boldly replaced the old method in the cohesion process and confirmed the adding amount, method and time for the new cohesive in a scientific way to improve its efficacy and prevent the loss.

As a result, the extraction rate and taste of the sugar were remarkably enhanced.

And the factory also saves much more raw and other materials than previously and ensures normal production by applying the recycling technology to steeping, desalting and decolouring, filtering and other processes.

The stevia sugar powder produced at the factory fully satisfies quality indices.

As it is made of natural products, it is not harmful to human body, promotes digestion and is good for treating and preventing diabetes, hypertension and nephritis. In addition, it is snowy white and hundreds of times sweeter than ordinary sugar, so it does not bring on a change to colours and tastes of foodstuffs and a very smaller amount of it is enough to have the same effect.

The stevia sugar powder is used at different factories to turn out various kinds of drinks, confectionery, condiments and medicines.

The demand for it is on the rise among ordinary citizens.

It improves the taste of kimchi and other dishes.

“We are working to upgrade production processes and put them on a scientific basis so as to better the quality of stevia sugar powder and increase its production,” said manager O Yong Il.
