"The text will now be subject to the scrutiny of the European Parliament. At the end of the procedure, steviol glucoside could be authorized in the EU by the end of the year," the European Commission said in a statement.
The Commission proposed a cut in the maximum usage levels for steviol glycosides requested by manufacturers, after a safety evaluation found that they could exceed the "acceptable daily intake" level of 4 milligrams per kg of body weight.
Zero-calorie steviol glycosides, which are between 40 and 300 times sweeter than sucrose, are derived from the Stevia rebaudiana plant -- also known as sweetleaf or sugarleaf -- native to Central and South America.
Unlike sucrose, steviol glycosides do not induce a glycaemic response when consumed, increasing their appeal as a natural sweetener for diabetics and those on carbohydrate-controlled diets.
PepsiCo Inc uses a sweetener derived from stevia in its low-calorie Tropicana juices, while Coca-Cola Co has announced plans to sell beverages containing its own stevia-derived sweetener, called rebiana.
Agribusiness giant Cargill announced plans earlier this year to link up with Associated British Foods to launch Europe's first natural tabletop sweetener in Britain, once the EU had given the green light for products made from stevia.

FSSAI approve Stevia Biotech Pvt. Ltd, Coca Cola and Cargill application for use of stevia in soft drink concentrates, chewing gums, carbonated water and other applied products.
The FSSAI scientific panel for example has recommended up to 200 milligrams per kg of steviol equivalent, which is an active component in stevia, in carbonated water and soft drink concentrates. In chewing gums up to 3,500 milligrams per kg of steviol equivalent.
"India Stevia Associatoion" welcome the recommendation made by the Scientific Panel and is thankful for considering the facts and out comes of last Codex Meeting and world wide researches and recommendations by world known health regulatory organizations like JACFA, WHO, US FDA, European Food Safety Authority and approve stevia.
