Stevia rebaudiana, commonly known as sweetleaf, is a tender perennial herb that is native to Paraguay and Brazil. Plants typically grow with weak and floppy stems and have little ornamental attraction. The attraction here is the sweet tasting leaves which contain glucoside compounds that are 200-300 times sweeter by weight than cane sugar but with no calories.
What is the difference between Stevia (steviodise) & Rebaudioside A? Stevia rebaudiana plant contains a high percentage of steviol glycoside (stevioside) and rebaudiana A, C, D & F. The Stevioside has a liquorish aftertaste while Rebaudioside-A has no liquorish or aftertaste.
