In existing processes, the extraction of steviol glycosides from stevia leaves involves many process steps often including extraction by organic solvents. The purpose of the present study was to develop a process for the effective extraction of steviol glycosides, which can provide a concentrated juice exhibiting a high level of recovery with regard to the target compounds, rebaudioside A and stevioside. Pressurized Hot Water Extraction (PHWE) was first optimized with Response Surface Methodology in terms of maximized rebaudioside-A yield and minimized colour components. PHWE was then combined with pressing in a wine-press, resulting higher efficiency for extracting both steviol glycosides in comparison to the reported methods in the literature. Finally, spray drying was applied for both product stabilization and removal of contaminants.
