What is stevia?
The Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni plant originally comes from South America. It was cultivated by the native people of Paraguay, who referred to it as "caa-hee," which translates to "honey leaf."
Today, stevia is used worldwide for sweetening.
Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni is a member of the daisy family. This family is abundant in herbs and includes plants like dandelion, true chamomile, and olive herb.
The Steviol glycoside extract from the Stevia plant has a caloric value of 0 kcal and has been approved for consumption in the EU since 2011.
The market offers various types of Stevia plants, making the selection process challenging. When choosing the finest Stevia sweetener, the key factors are its high sweetening power and minimal aftertaste.
The stevia plant has a sweetening power of up to 300 times greater than conventional table sugar.
Nonetheless, the steviol glycoside extract can sometimes be linked to an aftertaste. To address this, we've "wrapped" the stevia extract with fructose, effectively eliminating any lingering aftertaste concerns.
