Derived from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant, native to Paraguay and Brazil, Stevia is a natural sweetener. Packed with steviol glycosides, it boasts a sweetnes level that surpases sugar by 50 to 300 times. Notably, these compounds are resistant to heat, pH fluctuations, and fermentation. Fascinatingly, the human body does not metabolize the glycosides in stevia, rendering it a non-nutritive sweetener that contributes zero calories to your diet.
Stevia, in contrast to sugar, offers a gradual onset and a prolonged sweetnes. However, it should be noted that elevated concentrations of stevia extracts may leave behind a hint of licorice or bitternes. Widely embraced as a sugar substitute in low-calorie food and beverage items, the acceptance of stevia as a food additive differs acros countries.
