Common Uses

Stevia rebaudiana is a herb that can be used as a replacement for sugar, honey and artificial sweeteners. Stevia is suitable for use with all types of recipes including soups, baked products, desserts and beverages. Stevia is a flavour enhancer as well as a sweetener. It helps to bring out the true flavours in cereals, breads, pickles, juices, berries, sherbets, candies, yoghurt, ice cream, chewing gum, toothpaste and mouthwash. Generally, one cup of sugar can be replaced with approximately 1/4 teaspoon of Stevia extract. However a small amount should be used first until the desired sweetness is obtained. Stevia does not effect blood sugar metabolism. Some studies even report that Stevia reduces plasma glucose levels in normal adults. While Stevia has primarily been used as a sweetener, it has also been investigated as an aid in regulating blood sugar metabolism in diabetics. It does not ferment in the body, so does not increase any yeast overgrowth that may be present making it suitable for candida sufferers. It can also be used as a remedy for bleeding gums and as a gargle for sore throats and colds. This is due to Stevia's anti-bacterial activity. Stevia has been shown to inhibit the development of plaque and cavities. Because it is low carb, it is ideal for those on a low carb diet, who are still wanting to use a sweetener, but not resort to artificial sweeteners.

Suggested Dosage

Use as required.

Health Information

Stevia rebaudiana is a herb in the Chrysanthemum family which grows wild as a small shrub in parts of Paraguay and Brazil. While native Indians of the Guarani Tribe appear to have used the leaves of this herb as a sweetener since pre-Columbian times, it was not until 1887 when a South American natural scientist called Antonio Bertoni first discovered it. It is estimated that there are over 80 species of Stevia known to grow wild in North America and perhaps as many as 200 additional species native to South America. Of these, only Stevia Rebaudiana and another now-extinct species appear to posses the natural sweetness which is their distinguishing characteristic. The sweet secret of Stevia lies in a complex molecule called Stevioside. It is this complex molecule and a number of other related compounds that account for Stevia's extraordinary sweetness. The Stevia herb or leaf, in its natural form, is approximately 10 to 15 times sweeter than common table sugar. Extracts of Stevia, can range from 100 to 300 times sweeter than table sugar. This Spoonable Stevita Stevia powder is said to be less bitter than other stevia extracts available.
