About Stevia

Superfood from South America

The natives of Paraguay and Brazil have known for a long time: The leaves of the stevia plant are great for sweetening drinks and food. For hundreds of years, they have been using the plant, which they know as the "honey herb", for their teas and food. In 2008, the sweetener steviol glycoside was authorised by the Food Authority in Switzerland. Two years later SteviaSweet came onto the market and since then has enjoyed increasing popularity.

From plant to product

Steviol glycosides are extracted from the leaves of the stevia plant by a natural steam distillation process, and they are then purified, filtered, and dried to produce 100% natural stevia sweetening ingredient. The crystalised and dried concentrated steviol glycosides are mixed with other natural plant-derived ingredients to produce convenient and easy to dose SteviaSweet natural sweetener products which have a rounded, sugar-like sweet taste with virtually no calories.
