Stevia is derived from a shrub called Stevia rebaudiana that originates in Paraguay and has been used as a sweetener there for centuries by the Guarani Indians. It was first researched by a Spanish botanist named Petrus Jacobus Stevus, for whom it was named. Later, in 1931, French chemists isolated and identified the glycosides which give the plant its sweet taste: stevioside and rebaudioside. These glycosides were found to be anywhere from 40-300 times sweeter than sucrose, able to withstand very high temperatures, and non-fermentable. Stevia is widely used in Japan as a sweetener and is also popular in other countries such as: Brazil, Mexico and Russia.

So if you are looking to cut calories without sacrificing taste or sweetness, our stevia syrups are a great choice.
