Stevia TipsStevia Rebaudiana is commonly known as sweetleaf, sweet leaf, sugarleaf, or simply stevia. It is a genus of about 240 speices of herbs and shrubs in the sunflower family, native to subtropical and tropical South America and Central America.
Stevia is widely grown for its sweet leaves. The leaves of stevia have 30-45 times the sweetness of table sugar, yet the water extract from the leaves containing steviol glycoside, mainly stevioside and rebaudioside, is 250-300 times sweeter than table sugar. The stevia extract powder is zero calorie, heat stable, pH stable, and non-fermentable.
Thus stevia, especially stevia extract powder, has garnered attention with the rise in demand for low-carbohydrate, low-sugar food alternatives. Stevia was used for its sweetness in medicine or tea by natives in South America for centuries. Its extract has been widely used as a sweetener in Japan since 1971, and it is also available as a sweeter in Australia, New Zealand and China. In the United States, Rebiana is generally recognized as safe as of December 2008, and stevia is also recognized as a dietary supplement.
