PureCircle has received a letter of no objection from the Food and Drug Administration for the use of Rebaudioside M as a general purpose sweetener for foods and beverages in the United States, the company said Dec. 30.

Eivind Djupedal, a Cargill managing director and vice president, attended a two-day food security conference held this week at Chatham House in London entitled “Food Futures — Towards Sustainable Production and Consumption.” Chatham House is the home of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, whose mission is to lead independent analysis and informed debate on a wide range of issues. Discussion at Chatham House is regulated by its own famous rule: while the topics can be reported on, neither the identity nor the affiliation of any speaker or participant can be attributed. This results in particularly frank and honest in-room dialogue.

It’s now time for our lexicon to reflect how much we know, and it’s time for us to use our modern understanding of sustainability to have meaningful conversations—conversations that don’t include yesterday’s buzzwords. So, thanks, B word, we’ve learned a lot from talking about you, but it’s time for us to part ways.
