September 2013: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Cargill, Inc. for allegedly misleadingly labeling Truvía® Natural Sweetener. Among other things, the plaintiffs claim the company misrepresents the product as a natural sweetener primarily made from the stevia plant when, in reality, it contains both synthetic and chemically processed ingredients and only small amounts of Reb A (the stevia-derived ingredient). (Calderon et al v. Cargill, Inc. and Does 1-10, Case No. 13-cv-00685, C. D. CA.).
