WHAT IS STEVIA?
Stevia is a species of herbs and shrubs in the sunflower family. Its origins trace back to subtropical and tropical regions from western North America to South America. Stevia Rebaudiana, the sweetest stevia species, has been harvested for centuries for its sugar-like taste. In the early 1970’s, Japan began cultivating stevia in an effort to reduce consumption of cyclamate and saccharin, known carcinogens. Stevia received approval as a food additive in the United States and Europe in 2008 and 2011, respectively.
Through a process that is similar to steeping tea leaves, we can extract steviol glycosides, most notably a glycoside called Rebaudioside A, or Reb A. Amazingly, Reb A is up to 350 times sweeter than sugar! These glycosides are heat-stable, pH stable, and calorie-free. They also do not induce a glycemic response when ingested, which makes stevia a great choice for diabetics and those looking for a reduced-calorie sweetening solution.
