Fine white powder, intense sweet taste.
Intense sweet taste.
Stevia is a commonly used sweetener and sugar substitute which is extracted from a natural source. The Stevia Rebaudiana is a plant with leaves that are 30 – 40 times sweeter than sugar but when Stevia is extracted from the leaves it becomes 200 times sweeter than regular sucrose.
As Stevia has such a sweet taste only a small amount is required to deliver the same taste as regular sugar meaning it is often more cost effective to use in the production of food and drinks.
As well as the taste benefits Stevia is also low in calories making it extremely popular for those on calorie controlled diets. It is also popular with those suffering from diabetes thanks to its low glycaemic index.
Due to its stability under varying PH and heat conditions, Stevia is consistently popular amongst food and drink manufacturers for application in dairy products, baked goods, dietary products, beverages and table top sweeteners.
