Kal - Sure Stevia Liquid Natural Almond - 1.8 oz. (54.75ml)
Stevia extract is derived from the leaves of a small shrub of the chrysanthemum family called stevia. It grows wild in Paraguay and Brazil and is cultivated in Japan and China. Stevia extract contains steviosides, a substance that makes it unqiue among over 300 species of stevia plants. The extract is calorie-free and should not affect blood glucose levels in most individuals. Unlike the whole herb, the extract does not have a pronounced aftertaste.
The native peoples in South America used stevia primarily as a sweetener, a practice adopted by European colonists. The indigenous tribes also used stevia to treat diabetes. During World War II, stevia was grown in England as a sugar substitute. The greatest use of stevia as a sweetener today can be found in Japan.
