Stevia, commonly known as sweetleaf or sugarleaf, is a class of plant in the sunflower family that is widely grown for its sweet leaves. This plant originally comes from rain forests of Brazil and Paraguay.
The extracted form of Stevia has about 300 times the sweetness of sugar and does not appear to contain any calories. Stevia is used as a sugar substitute and due to its negligible effects on blood glucose, it is often a popular food additive in low-carbohydrate and low-sugar food alternatives.
PLEASE NOTE: This item is STEVIOCIDE EXTRACT. This is not powdered stevia. Because it is so concentrated, it will taste bitter if used without dilution.
For sweetening a single beverage start with 20 mg, adding more to meet your desired sweetness. For substituting in baking, begin with 150mg per cup of sugar, increasing slowly to meet the desired sweetness prior to baking. A micro scale is recommended to ensure accurate and precise measurements.
