Stevia Production Cost Analysis 2020

Stevia is a natural sweetener, which acts as a sugar substitute. It is extracted using the leaves of the plant species, Stevia rebaudiana. It is native to Brazil and Paraguay. The active components are steviol glycosides that are primarily stevioside and rebaudioside, which have 30 to 150 times more sweetness than sugar. They are heat-stable, pH-stable, and not fermentable. 

Once consumed, the body does not metabolize the glycosides in stevia. Hence it holds zero calories like some artificial sweeteners. Stevia's taste has a slower onset, as well as a longer duration than that of sugar. Also, some of its extracts may have a bitter or licorice-like aftertaste at high concentrations.

The legal status of stevia as a food additive or dietary supplement can vary from country to country. In the United States, high-purity, stevia glycoside extracts have been generally recognized as safe or as GRAS.
