Powdered stevia leaf is produced from the foliage of a small shrub in the sunflower family that occurs naturally in Paraguay and Brazil and is cultivated in Japan, China and Mexico. The presence of glycosides, especially a class called steviosides, lend the powder a slight licorice-like flavor.

Powdered stevia powder is used in as an alternative to sugar in beverages, baked goods and other foods. Because it is several hundred times sweeter than regular sugar, only a small amount is needed.

stevia leaf

Stevia is a semi-tropical plant in the daisy family that is native to South America and cultivated in China, Japan and Mexico as a commercial crop. For hundreds of years, the people of Brazil and Paraguay have used the leaf of this herb to lend sweetness to ceremonial beverages, as well as the everyday herbal tea called chimarrão.

The sweet factor from stevia is owing to a group of glycosides known as steviosides. Powdered stevia leaf is roughly 10 to 20 times sweeter than sugar, but is calorie-free and doesn’t impact blood glucose levels. To use in beverages or in cooking or baking, 2 tablespoons of stevia leaf powder is the approximate equivalent of 1 cup of sugar.
