Sunwin International Neutraceuticals Partners With United States Distribution Corp to Enter the U.S. 25 Billion Sweetener Market

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL and QUFU, CHINA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 16, 2005 -- Sunwin International Neutraceuticals, Inc. (OTC BB: SUWN), an industry leader in the production and distribution of Chinese herbs, veterinary medicines and low calorie natural sweetener (Stevia) in China, has signed a distribution agreement with United States Distribution Corp ("USDC"). The agreement calls for USDC to distribute Sunwin's low calorie natural sweetener (Stevia) produced by Sunwin. USDC has relationships with 55,000 retail outlets across the U.S., including warehouses, mass retailers, grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, hotels, casinos, convention centers, stadium concessions, gas stations, convenience stores, and natural food chain stores. USDC management has successfully built the FDA approved Pharb Hangover Relief Medicine to an estimated $45 million in revenue over a 4 year period.

Mr. Laiwang Zhang, President and Chairman of Sunwin International, commented, "Following a thorough review and interview process, our management team has selected the USDC as our partner to enter the $25 billion sweetener market in the U.S. We expect this relationship will help boost our global Stevia sales to a new level. Our goal is to achieve $10 million in annual sales for Stevia in the U.S."

Mark De Mattei, CEO of the USDC, stated, "Having examined Stevia manufactured by Sunwin, analyzed the global trends, and surveyed the market demand in the U.S., we are very optimistic about the potential market for Sunwin products in the U.S. Currently, there is a growing awareness about the health effects of sugar and synthetic sweetener. Furthermore, initial market reaction has been extremely positive. We see this as a tremendous opportunity to introduce Stevia in the $25 billion sweetener market in the U.S."

Stevia, a 100% natural sweetener, is extracted from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant, as a food additive which is used in various products such as beverages, foods, confections, and medicinal products in China and Japan. Forms of Stevia are approximately 300 times sweeter than general sucrose, with only 1/300th of the calories. Stevia is often referred to as the third generation of natural low calorie sweetener. The implications of this go far beyond the simple notion of being a weight watcher's dream. When Stevia products are in their pure unadulterated form they do not adversely affect blood glucose levels, which means that diabetics and hypoglycemics can use them as well. However, the glycosides are not the whole story. Studies have found that the leaf contains proteins, fiber, iron, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium, zinc, the flavonoid rutin, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and oil which contains 53 other nutritional constituents, making it the quintessential dietary supplement.
