Organic Stevia - Finest Quality Natural Sweetener from Stevia Rebaudiana
Stevia from certified organic farming as a basis of products such as stevia extracts or natural dried stevia leaves is hard to find. This website will provide information about the stevia plant and its derivatives coming from organically grown fields.
Sweetener Stevia – Sugar not needed anymore?
The stevia plant – also known as the sweet leaf or sugarleaf – has been used as a sweetener for a long time in southamerican countries like Paraguay. While stevia has gained acceptance in countries outside Latin America, particularly in Japan, the European Union and the United States still refuse to permit stevia rebaudiana and its extracts as a sweetener.
For this reason you can buy stevia in UK or Germany for different purposes but not for consumption. "Bio Stevia" offered for example in German wholefood shops officially serve as cosmetics. Nevertheless and given the fact that steviol glycoside extracts provide up to 300 times the sweetnes of sugar while containing almost zero calories the question arises whether the use of stevia products could help to decrease the consumption of sugar, known to cause many common diseases.
