Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf Extract
Stevia is a sweetener and sugar substitute derived from the leaves of the sweetleaf plant (Stevia rebaudiana). These plants are native to Brazil and Paraguay and grow to around half a meter tall, with curving, tooth-edged leaves. Locals have used these leaves for many hundreds of years in tea, medicine and as a sweet treat. Today stevia is cultivated and sold around the world as one of the most popular sugar alternatives.
