TO KNOW MORE
What is stevia?
Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni) is an herbaceous evergreen plant from southwestern Brazil and Paraguay, where it is known as ka’a he’ê (in Guarani, sweet herb). For centuries, the Guarani tribes of Paraguay and Brazil have used different species of stevia, mainly Stevia rebaudiana, as a sweetener to counteract the bitter taste of plant-based medicines and drinks, and for medicinal purposes including the regulation of blood sugar and high blood pressure. Stevia contains no calories and the leaves can be used in their natural state. Thanks to its great sweetening power, only a small amount of this product is needed.
Stevia is one of the most widely used sweeteners. Sweeteners are substances used instead of sugar, so they’re called sugar substitutes or non-caloric sweeteners. By offering a sweet taste without many calories, it is said that sweeteners might be an answer for weight control, may help dental health, and may also help individuals with diabetes control their blood sugar.
Natural sweeteners are sweet-tasting compounds extracted from plants or natural products with some nutritional value.
Did you know that human beings have got ‘sweet memory’?
Sweet taste is universally considered as one of the most pleasant sensory experiences. This may be because humans are born with a ‘sweet memory’. This preference for sweetness could have encouraged our ancestral primates to choose high-energy foods and to possibly avoid starvation by storing extra calories in the body.
