The sweet tasting substances produced by the stevia plant are called steviol glycosides These substances are (1) stevioside, (2) rebaudioside A, (3) rebaudioside C and (4) dulcoside A. The natural ratio produced by the leaves, in traditional stevia plants, is 60% stevioside, 30% rebaudioside A and 10% rebaudiside C and dulcoside. They all have a sweet taste, however, the rebaudiosides and dulcoside have a more sugar-like taste, whereas the stevioside has more of a honey-herbal taste.
Stevita Stevia has a greater percentage of rebaudiosides and dulcosides, therefore it has a very clean, and almost similar to fructose taste.
To make it possible to package the powder in small individual servings and to make it easier to measure for cooking purposes, Stevita added erythritol, a bulking agent naturally extracted from fruits, vegetables and grains . Unlike other fillers in the market such as lactose, maltodextrine, F.O.S., etc, erythritol has a very high digestive tolerance and practically zero calories.
Stevita stevia is cultivated in one of the best and richest soil in the world (the southern Brazilian red clay soil). To contribute to its preservation and to maintain the social, spiritual, and ecological harmony with the environment, Stevita has made a commitment to use only sustainable farming and industrial practices. As a result of this hard work and dedication, the Stevita brand is recognized as the number one in quality, purity and taste.
