Have you tried injecting high energy photons into the dilithium crystals thus forcing ionic recrystallization?
In order for a stevia plant to be converted into the final, GRAS approved product, milling, extracting, combining, chemical refining, filtrating, desorption, sterilization, recrystallization and purifying may have to occur depending on the procedure (s) used.
It may involve a change in texture (recrystallization), a change in mineralogy or both.
Quartzite forms from the recrystallization of silica found in sandstone.
In this rock, you get the recrystallization and foliation of quartz, feldspars, micas, and amphiboles into alternating light - and dark-colored bands.
The behavior of amphibole fibers under continuous heating is similar to that observed with chrysotile, although the temperatures of dehydroxylation and recrystallization processes are different.
All these forms of recrystallization within the community, large and small, arose because of the inadaptability and want of vigour and cooperation in the formal governing, economically directive and educational systems.
In fact, many of the freeze tolerant species that produce AFP's contain them in too low a concentration to produce thermal hysteresis; they are concentrated enough to inhibit recrystallization, however, since the thermodynamic driving force is much lower than for crystal growth in supercooled water.
In many cases, damage from freezing has been linked to the rate of thawing, implicating the degree to which the ice undergoes recrystallization as a damaging mechanism.
Since a few freeze tolerant insects produce antifreeze proteins, it has been speculated that these proteins minimize the injury associated with recrystallization of extracellular ice (AFP's are potent inhibitors of recrystallization).
