HERB: Stevia Rebaudiana
The herb grows wild in Brazil and Paraguay as a small shrub. It is also cultivated in China and Japan areas as well. There are over 300 species of Stevia plants, but the one we use as a sweetener contains 10% Stevioside within its leaves. This herb is completely non-toxic and has been used by the Paraguay Indians for centuries.
Stevia has zero calories. Stevia will NOT raise blood sugar levels. Tests also show that it is not harmful to any dental concerns. Diabetic? As always-consult your Physician first, but Stevia can safely be consumed by a Diabetic as it does not raise the blood sugar.
Not only is Stevia heat stable, but it is 10-15 times more sweeter than sugar so you use less. It will, however, not caramelize so it may not be great for certain baking recipes. You can actually make your own extract with Stevia leaves, pure water and USP grain alcohol (a Scotch or Brandy).
