Sunwin USA Launches New OnlySweet™ Blend in More Than 3,000 US Stores and Online

Sees Expanding Opportunities in Using Stevia Sweetener in the Consumer Goods Industry

QUFU, CHINA--(Marketwire - December 7, 2009) - Sunwin International Neutraceuticals, Inc. (OTCBB: SUWN), an industry leading provider of high quality stevia extracts, announced today the launch of its new OnlySweet™ tabletop formulation which can be found in more than 3,000 retail stores across the United States as well as online through the company's web site and major retail destinations such as Amazon.com. The new blend contains a GRAS, high grade Rebaudioside A Stevia extract and natural taste modifiers developed by Sunwin's partner WILD Flavors Inc., the largest privately owned flavor company focusing on natural food and beverage development.

"We are very excited to launch this new formulation of OnlySweet™, which we believe offers consumers an all-natural stevia alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners for everyday use at a great price," said Jeff Reynolds, President of Sunwin USA. "We have improved upon OnlySweet's best qualities as a natural, no-calorie sweetener with the addition of proprietary all-natural taste modifiers developed by WILD Flavors, the creator of many popular natural and health related products in the consumer goods space today. Consumers can easily use OnlySweet™ for beverages, cereals, cooking and baking needs."

OnlySweet™ addresses the expanding US stevia market, which is expected to reach more than $700 million in the next five years as consumers adopt stevia to combat concerns about obesity and the increasing occurrence of health problems related to high-sugar lifestyles such as diabetes. OnlySweet™ is sold in tabletop packet boxes of 100 and 50 packets for a suggested retail price of $6.99 and $3.99, respectively. The new formulation is available on store shelves at more than 3,000 retail outlets, including chains such as Kroger, Fred Meyer, King Sooper, Dillons and H.E.B among others, as well as many locally-owned health food specialty stores. For customers not located near a store carrying OnlySweet™, it is also available online at major shopping sites such as Amazon.com as well as directly from Sunwin USA via its newly updated product web site at www.onlysweet.com.

"We are excited to see continued growth in the stevia market opportunity in the US," continued Reynolds. "We are confident that our partnership with WILD Flavors has significantly enhanced our position in the food and beverage industry and we look forward to launching a number of product lines utilizing OnlySweet™ Stevia with multi-national packaged goods companies in the near future."

OnlySweet™ is a proprietary blend of high quality extracts from stevia Rebaudiana, a plant known around the world by names like "sugar leaf," "sweetleaf" and "honey leaf." Refined stevia has been used for decades throughout many countries and as a natural sweetener by indigenous peoples for centuries. This delicious, natural sweetener has no calories or carbohydrates, allowing it to be an important part of a sweeter, yet healthier lifestyle. High grade stevia extracts have been accepted as safe, natural sweetening alternatives by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) Joint Expert Committee of Food Additives (JECFA).
