Bravo Filipino | Stevia Nutritional Facts | Stevia, scientifically known as Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni, is an ancient perennial shrub part of the Asteraceae family that is closely related to asters and chrysanthemums. It originates from South America and can be found in Paraguay and Brazil. Stevia produces diterpene glycosides that are low-calorie sweeteners that make it around 200 to 300 times sweeter than regular table sugar in the same concentration. In recent years, a stevia extract, called rebaudioside A, has become increasingly popular as a natural sugar substitute.
Stevia looks like sugar but tastes even sweeter and can now be found in foods like soft drinks, candy, coffee, tea, and pre-packaged baked goods. It is also sold as a tabletop sweetener, a healthier alternative to artificial sweeteners. Stevia can also be used in different cooking and baking applications.
Here are the nutrition facts of Stevia as provided by the USDA for one packet (1g) of stevia.
