Sweet Stevia Plant
The stevia plant is the
new sugar. This South American herb can be about 30 times sweeter
than sugar and has been used as a sweetener by Paraguayan Indians
for centuries. The stevia plant has a delicious and refreshing flavor
that leaves your mouth tasting sweet for a long time.
Recently, companies have made deals with
stevia plant manufacturers to incorporate the stevia plant into
their products as a sweetener. The stevia plant can be purchased in various forms
today: stevia packets, stevia clear liquid, stevia tabs, stevia
extract powder and more. However, the stevia plant is sold as a
dietary supplement rather than a sweetener due to labeling regulations.
