PleSance Stevia Extract Powder

A Natural Sweetener

Product Code: STEVIARAPW1

Introduction
PleSance Stevia is a natural alternative to sugar, and other synthetic sweeteners including high intensity sweeteners such as Aspartame, Acesulfame Potassium and Sucralose. Stevia is a shrub of the aster/chrysanthemum family with extremely sweet leaves which make Stevia one of the most desired high intensity natural sweeteners. Compared with Sucrose, Stevia is suggested to be approximately 200-300 times sweeter. Although Stevia was not allowed to be sold as a sweetener in the USA for many years, two new extracts with high glycosides and Reb-A content were presented to the FDA who have since issued "no objection" letters. The EFSA in Europe is also working on similar approvals and in April 2010 issued an updated positive opinion. As different Steviosides have different sweetness and flavor profiles, one of the more prominent Steviosides recently studied is rebaudioside A, which is noted for a clean and pure sweetness profile in Stevia.

Benefits
Stevia has been the subject of extensive research demonstrating the nontoxicity of Stevia.
