The excitement on stevia is palpable and many predict it is destined to become the main street workhorse natural high potency sweetener on the market. Stevia is a sweetener and sugar substitute extracted from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana.
The active compounds of stevia are steviol glycosides, which have up to 150 times the sweetness of sugar is heat-stable, pH-stable, and not fermentable. These steviosides have a negligible effect on blood glucose, which makes stevia attractive to people on carbohydrate-controlled diets. Stevia’s taste has a slower onset and longer duration than that of sugar, and some of its extracts may have a bitter or licorice-like aftertaste at high concentrations.
STEV President George Blankenbaker who has lived in Asia for years spearheaded the Company’s development of high Reb-A Stevia farming in Vietnam as well as secured important distribution through PureCircle, the industry’s leading stevia refiner.
