Stevia is a natural sweetener and sugar substitute derived from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana, native to Paraguay and Brazil.

The active compounds are steviol glycosides (mainly stevioside and rebaudioside), which have about 50 to 300 times the sweetness of sugar, are heat-stable, pH-stable, and not fermentable. The human body does not metabolize the glycosides in stevia, so it contains zero calories as a non-nutritive sweetener. Stevia's taste has a slower onset and longer duration than that of sugar, and at high concentrations some of its extracts may have an aftertaste described as licorice-like or bitter. Stevia is used in sugar- and calorie-reduced food and beverage products as an alternative for variants with sugar.

The legal status of stevia as a food additive or dietary supplement varies from country to country. In the United States, certain high-purity stevia glycoside extracts have been generally recognized as safe (GRAS) and may be lawfully marketed and added to food products, but stevia leaf and crude extracts do not have GRAS or Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for use in food. The European Union approved Stevia rebaudiana additives in 2011, while in Japan, stevia has been widely used as a sweetener for decades.


Mixed with other sweeteners
Enhances the taste and pleasantness when used with other sweeteners such as sucrose, glucose or fructose. It is suitable in replacing 40-60% of sucrose used in food products thereby reducing the production cost.

Biscuits and Cookies
Stevia can preserve the crispiness and crunchiness of cookies and biscuits when use in place of sugar.

Preserved Food
It’s large molecular weight makes it less likely to be absorbed into preserved or canned food. This helps to retain the original taste and freshness of the food. It also prevents the stickiness and fermentation normally caused by sucrose

Chewing Gum
Provides a long and lingering sweetness, great for the production of sugarless gums

Sauce products
Harmonises very well with salt to give it a deeper variety of taste. It can maintain a pleasant colour even when cooked in high heat.

Acts as a suppressing agent for removing unwanted flavours in medication.

Known to improve the palatability of animal feeds, thereby reducing feeding times and improving the appetite of livestocks.

Alcoholic Beverages
Readily dissolves in alcohol without reaction to its taste and properties
