Natural Herb - Calorie-Free - Saccharin-Free - Aspartame-Free -Used Worldwide - Superior Taste - Healthy Alternative
Stevia is sugarless, calorie free and a plaque retardant that is reportedly suitable for diabetics as it does not impact blood sugar levels. Stevia can replace sugar in the diet and can be used as a flavour enhancer. It helps bring out the true flavours in cereals, juices, berries, ice cream, candies, chewing gum, toothpaste and mouthwash in addition to its normal sweetening activity. It can also be tried topically as a mask ingredient.
Stevia Rebaudiana is a small plant native to Paraguay and Brazil It was discovered in 1887 by a South scientist named Antonio Bertoni who learned of the herb from the Guarani Paraguayan Indians Stevia was known locally as Caa'-ehe or Kaa'-he-e which means "sweet herb" or "honeyleaf".
Two french chemists named Bridel and Lavieille began to unravel the secret of Stevia in 1931 with exploratory extraction on Stevia Rebaudiana leaves. Their research yielded a pure, white crystalline compound they named "stevioside" They found this substance to be 100-300 times sweeter than table sugar and without toxic effects in laboratory animals.
In 1971 a Chinese researcher, Dr. Tei-fu-chen visited Paraguay where he became so interested in Stevia that he applied for residency status in both Paraguay and Brazil. The non-chemical method of extraction recorded in herbal manuscripts of Chinese emperors became the standard method of extraction for Stevia. It removed the undesirable green color and bitter after taste that is found in stevia leaves.
Dozens of studies have shown Stevia to be a safe supplement for the human diet, and it is currently used extensively throughout the world in a variety of ways. We hope you enjoy our Stevia!
