Stevia Extract is an all-natural, non-caloric, plant-based, high intensity sweetener from the leaves of the plant species stevia rebaudiana. The plant has been used for thousands of years by locals in South America to sweeten teas and medicines. The sweet compounds of stevia leaves are steviol glycosides, mainly stevioside and rebaudioside. High purity stevia extracts are 200-400 times sweeter than sugar, and they are heat and pH stable. Stevia is approved as food additives and supplements in most countries; it is the most popular natural alternative to sugar in the United States, European Union, Japan and China.
