While Equal and Saccharine continue to dominate the non-caloric sweetener market, a remarkable herb called Stevia remains relatively unknown. Anyone who suffers from blood sugar disorders or who need to limit their caloric intake needs to know about the remarkable properties of Stevia. Stevia offers an ideal alternative to other sugars or sugar substitutes. This herb also has numerous therapeutic properties and has been proven in safety and effectiveness for hundreds of years.
Stevia is a small perennial shrub with green leaves that belongs to the aster or chrysanthemum family of plants. It grows primarily in the Amambay mountain range of Paraguay but over 200 species of Stevia have been found around the world. Stevia rebaudiana is the only species at present, which possesses the ability to sweeten.
The leaves of the Stevia shrub contain specific substances (glycosides), which produce a sweet taste but have no caloric value. Stevia also contains protein, fibers, carbohydrates, phosphorus, iron, calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium, rutin (flavonoid), zinc, vitamin C and vitamin A.
The sweetening power of Stevia is amazing. It is rated between 70 to 400 times sweeter than white sugar. What is really intriguing about Stevia is that it is completely calorie-free, never initiates a rise in blood sugar, and does not provide an intestinal source for bacteria and yeasts.
Although the herb is found growing wild, the most potent hybrids, the stevia plants richest in steviosides, are cultivated on plantations. The herbs are carefully nurtured and harvested at only certain times of the year. For insured safety and quality only buy Stevia that is organically grown without chemicals or pesticides.
