What is Stevia?
Who is AgriStevia?
Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni is a fantastic natural sweetener that has been used for centuries by the indigenous cultures of the tropical and subtropical regions in South-America. The plant is known as Stevia, but in other parts of the world is also known as “Sweet Leaf”, “Sugar Leaf” or “Honey Leaf”. The thick, soft leaves contain steviol glycosides that give the sweet taste without the harmful side-effects of many other sweeteners, as it is 100% natural. The steviol glycosides do not affect the blood sugar level and that is why Stevia is commonly used by diabetes patients. The extract of the Stevia plant can be up to 400 times sweeter that normal white refined table sugar.
