The natural sweetener, more commonly known as sweet stevia, is an ingredient made from perennial herbs of the Asteraceae family found in South America. The peculiarity of the plant is its pronounced sweet taste and the complete absence of sugars and toxic components. Stevia is 250-350 times sweeter than sugar, while it does not increase blood glucose and does not contribute to the deposition of fat.
Who is stevia for?
This grass is made sweet by 2 components – rebaudioside A and steviol glycosides. The plant has healing properties due to its rich composition. Therefore, those who care about their health and lead a healthy lifestyle can cook dishes with the addition of stevia extract.
Stevia is also useful for overweight people, those suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, osteochondrosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and thyroid dysfunction. Due to the lack of sugars, stevia sweetener prevents the formation of pathogenic bacteria in the mouth and the development of tooth decay.
