Product Description

Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana) is an herb in the plant family Asteraceae. It is native to South America, but cultures all over the world have been growing and using Stevia as a sweetener and a medicine for centuries [Gupta et al 2013; Goyal et al 2010]. The sweetness of Stevia has been measured to be as much as 300 times greater than that of regular table sugar [Goyal et al 2010], while it has zero calories and contains many nutrients, amino acids, and healthful bioactives [Gupta et al 2013; Periche et al 2014]. Although, the US Food and Drug Administration has not yet approved use of the whole Stevia plant leaf as a food or additive, some extracts have been certified as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) [FDA website]. Hundreds of independent scientific studies and global regulatory agencies have examined and affirmed the safety of various aspects of Stevia [globalsteviainstitute website; Geuns 2003; Brusick 2008; Urban et al 2013].
