    Sweetener enhancer - yeah probably a good bet. With diet drinks it's long been customary to blend sweeteners as many have found to be synergistic - a proper blend of two make for an apparant sweetness stronger than either one individually. Sounds like they've come up with something that works acceptably well with sucrose or HFCS. Be interesting to see what they end up labelling it as.
    This will be labeled "Artificial Flavors" and it won't have to be labeled by itself. Pure stevia is good, Truvia and Purevia can cause health problems in some people. Same with Sucralose (Splenda) and aspartame. This is anything but Natural.
    Mixing sugar with pure stevia (not like Sprite Green which uses Truvia) is the way to go.

      If they are messing with your tongue and brain don't you think most people will say wtf? Maybe I'm wrong but I use hfcs, aspartame, ace-k and don't think twice about it. On the other hand they don't confuse my tongue and brain into thinking it's sweeter than it is. Don't you think people will object to this as really safe and will lawsuits be a norm????

        Both Truvia and Purevia are extracts from the stevia plant. They are essentially the same thing. They can be labeled as "all natural" because they are extracted from the stevia plant instead of being produced in a chemical reaction pot.

        The use of these "all natural" claims is just a marketing gimmick.

        Maybe the Pepsi people have found a co-sweetner that will mask the nasty bitter aftertaste that goes with stevia extract.

          Organic or not, if it's tested over a period of time and deemed safe, big deal.
          Look at the Coke or Pepsi ingredients.

            No stevia required so this will be different from Edge in a way, your taste buds will be altered to make the soda seem sweeter. More chemicals....
            Watch out. That sound like exactly how MSG works ("turns up" your taste buds).
