Origins 

The stevia plant (Stevia rebaudiana) belongs to the chrysanthemum family and  grows mainly in Paraguay and Brazil. Stevia has been used as a sweetener in many countries for many years. In Japan for example, stevia is widely used as a sweetener in soy sauces and beverages, whilst in Brazil it is even used to treat diabetes. Stevia was only approved for use in the E.U. in December 2011, which is perhaps why stevia is still relatively unknown in Europe. Since its approval, more stores are selling stevia as an individual product and manufacturers are increasingly using this natural sweetener in a variety of food products. 

Quantity and Dosage 

Stir 1 or 2 drops of stevia liquid into your favourite smoothie, shake, lemonade, lassi or herbal tea. Stevia liquid is 300 times more sweet than sugar, so it’s always recommended to begin with a very low dose. One small bottle of stevia liquid contains 50 ml, so can last up to 1000 days, depending on how much you use.

Facts 

  • The stevia plant is naturally extremely sweet. This is due to the complex molecules, called steviosides, which are present in the plant
  • Steviosides are 300 times sweeter than sugar and consist of glycosides made from glucose, sophorose and steviol. Glycosides are not absorbed into the body and instead leave the body totally undigested, which is why stevia is free from calories
  • There was already an application for the use of stevia as a sweetener in 1999, but the European Commission didn’t approved the request as it was not yet convinced that the product was safe, despite the fact that stevia had already been used in other countries for many years without problems. One suspects that the lobby of sugar manufacturers played an important role in the decision
  • There has been significant scientific research in recent years, which concluded that stevia is completely safe
