Stevia legal como infusión

Situación del uso de las hojas de Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni como infusión.

De acuerdo con la normativa comunitaria, para que un alimento pueda comercializarse en el
mercado comunitario es necesario disponer de datos que acrediten el consumo significativo en
alimentación humana antes del 15 de mayo de 1997. En caso contrario y siempre que cumpla
los requisitos establecidos en la legislación vigente, este producto tendrá consideración de nuevo alimento y necesitará autorización previa a su comercialización de acuerdo con el procedimiento del Reglamento (CE) Nº 258/1997 sobre nuevos alimentos y nuevos ingredientes alimentarios.

Desde hace varios años se ha venido debatiendo el tema de si las hojas secas de Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni tienen historial de consumo significativo en la Unión Europea anterior al 15 de mayo de 1997. Recientemente un Estado miembro de la Unión Europea ha presentado datos de consumo de la hoja seca para infusión con anterioridad al 15 mayo de 1997. Dada la problemática generada a nivel nacional y europeo, se planteó de nuevo la situación en la Comisión Europea con el fin de aunar criterios. Después de tratarse en varios Grupos de Trabajo de Nuevos Alimentos en la Comisión Europea, ha habido una armonización a nivel comunitario y con fecha 16 de junio del año en curso se ha concluido lo siguiente: Stevia rebaudiana Common Names: candyleaf, sweetleaf, sugarleaf

“The request only concerns herbal and fruit infusions containing or prepared with leaves of Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni and intended to be consumed as such. Such use(s) is considered as not novel. The use of extracts from leaves of Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni as a sweetener or as a flavouring fall in the context of Regulation (EC) No 1333/2008 on food additives or Regulation (EC) No 1334/2008 on flavourings […]

The Shocking Truth About Stevia

It’s safe to say that excess sugar consumption has become a scary worldwide issue. It seems like every time you check a nutrition label or an ingredients list, sugar or some version of it, is staring you square in the face.

If we could only eat less sugar, maybe we could nip preventable diseases like obesity and type 2 diabetes in the bud and have healthier populations to take us to great places. If only there was a natural, healthy sweetener available for everyday consumption.

Oh hello, stevia.

Stevia first appeared in health stores, and then grocery stores, and slowly, but surely, started to convince healthy skeptics that we indeed had a natural, calorie free sweetener on our hands.

It seemed too good to be true.

So I believed the hype. I wanted to believe that this gift from the sweetener gods was finally here.

Until I started doing some research and discovered the shocking truth about stevia.

And you should learn it too.

What Is Stevia?

Stevia plants have been growing for centuries in the warm tropical climates of South America. There are over 200 different species of stevia plants, but those extracted from the species stevia rebaudiana contain Rebaudioside A, the sweetest component of the leaves that has very minimal aftertaste after processing.

As Natalie Digate Muth, M.D., M.P.H., R.D., writes for the American Council on Exercising: “Rebaudioside A acts chemically similar to sugar in onset, intensity and duration of sweetness”.

Most of the stevia on the market contains extracted Rebaudioside A and a mix of stevioside, the crystalline compound that makes stevia taste 100 to 300 times sweeter than normal cane sugar.

Even though the glycosides rebaudioside (or rebiana) and stevioside are sweeter than sugar, Irwin Goldman says that, “once consumed, the glycosides […]

La stevia, un endulzante repleto de propiedades

Los daños a la salud que causa el azúcar refinada son amplios e innegables. Así, muchas personas eligen buscar alternativas más saludables.

Hay muchos endulzantes de bajas calorías en el mercado, pero la mayoría de ellos son artificiales. Sin embargo, hay algunos endulzantes naturales que son de gran ayuda. Uno de ellos es la stevia, que se ha vuelto inmensamente popular en años recientes.

La stevia es 100 % natural, tiene cero calorías y un gran número de beneficios para la salud que han sido confirmados en estudios sobre humanos.
¿Qué es la stevia?

La stevia es una planta de hojas verdes que crece en Sudamérica. Se ha usado con propósitos medicinales durante varios siglos, y también se la ha usado como endulzante gracias a su fuerte sabor dulce.

Sin embargo, los endulzante refinados de stevia que se usan en la actualidad no tienen ninguna similitud con la planta. Se pueden comprar hojas de stevia, pero lo que se consigue más comunmente es extracto (tanto líquito como en polvo) o una versión aislada y refinada de los componentes dulces de la planta.

Los dos componentes endulzantes principales que pueden aislarse de la stevia son el esteviósido y el rebaudiósido A. Estos dos ingredientes son cientos de veces más dulces que el azúcar.

Y aquí hay un punto a subrayar. La mayoría de los estudios utiliza esteviósido, el componente aislado de la planta. Sería complicado alcanzar dosis farmacológicamente activas de esteviósido sólo usando stevia como endulzante, ya que sólo un 10 % de su peso está compuesto por esteviósido.

La gente muchas veces confunde la stevia con otro endulzante llamado truvia, pero no son lo mismo. La truvia es una mezcla de compuestos, uno de los cuales se extrae de hojas de stevia.
Resumiendo: La […]

STEVIA – The Natural Sweetener

Industries always look for better option to better serve their customers and current situation of obesity has led them to find alternative to calorie intensive sugar. The Answer to the question “Can we get sweetness without biting calories?” has been found. Stevia is the solution for adding sweeteness in your products. This is a wonmderful many fold sweetness option for industries concerned with people health.

With its steviol glycoside extracts having up to 300 times the sweetness of sugar, Stevia has garnered attention because of the rise in demand for low-carbohydrate, low-calorie, low-sugar food alternatives. Stevia does not raise blood glucose—meaning that the steviol glycosides responsible for Stevia’s sweet taste do not induce a glycaemic response when consumed—which makes it an appealing sweetener for individuals diagnosed with metabolic syndrome who have been advised to strictly adhere to a strict, carbohydrate-controlled diet. Fermentation-derived steviol glycosides are individually produced and highly pure forms of the Stevia sweetener produced through fermentation rather than by refining of extracts from cultivated Stevia leaves.

Sources of Stevia

Stevia is a naturally occurring sweetener from plants in the sunflower family. Leaves of stevia plant are used to extract its sweetening effect. It has a slower onset and longer duration of taste than sugar. It is 250-300 times sweeter than sugar and has been used for several years in a number of countries as sweeteners for a range of food products.

Applications:

1. Mixed with other sweeteners Enhances the taste and pleasantness when used with other sweeteners such as sucrose, glucose or fructose. It is suitable in replacing 40-60% of sucrose used in food products thereby reducing the production cost.

2. Biscuits and CookiesStevia can preserve the crispiness and crunchiness of cookies and biscuits when use in place of sugar.

3. Preserved […]

    European Commission Approves Sweetener Stevia and Improves Transparency for Additives

European Commission Approves Sweetener Stevia and Improves Transparency for Additives

Stevia, a natural sweetener from plant extracts of Stevia rebaudiana is up to 300 times sweeter than sugar. The food industry is interested in this substance for years, but Stevia has long been suspected of causing cancer. The European Commission has now decided that the substance is safe after the European authority for food safety (EFSA) had allayed health concerns to Stevia in 20101. The regulation (EU) No 1131/2011 introducing the new sweetener shall become effective early December 2011. The new additive will be listed under number E 960. Furthermore the use of additives in food will soon become even safer and more transparent by adoption of two new legislations.
A new natural sweetener is finally approved to be used as additive in the EU. The sweetener is made from the leaves of the in Paraguay domestic plant Stevia rebaudiana and is up to 300 times sweeter than sugar. Thus, Stevia could be use for example in the manufacturing of low-calorie beverages. The food industry wants to use the substance in soft drinks, yogurt, cereals and chocolate. The new additive will be listed under number E 960. One of the reasons for this approval is the “need for new, reduced-calorie products” according to the EU.
On November 11th the European Commission formally adopted the regulation which allows the use of steviol glycosides as a sweetener for foods and beverages in the 27 member states. The regulation, which was published November 12th in the EU Official Journal, becomes effective December 2nd after member states had already granted approval during the summer. According to the EU, the EFSA has verified the safety of the substance. Stevia has long been suspected to be a possible carcinogenic and genotoxic substance.

Food additives are defined as […]
