THE POWER OF STEVIA TO TRANSFORM YOUR PRODUCT
The sugar substitute Stevia is extracted from the stevia plant and is naturally grown in Brazil and Paraguay, where it has been used for hundreds of years to sweeten foods and treat burns and stomach discomfort. The plant gets its sweetness from naturally occurring glycosides, which are extracted from the stevia leaves through a process that starts by placing the plant in hot water.
Practical Application of Stevia in the Food Industry
Over the past 15 years, GLG’s agricultural expertise has produced the best stevia leaf in the world (disease resistant, large-leafed plants containing, crucially, a high percentage of both rebaudioside A and total glycosides) as well as the only hybrid stevia seed in the world. Stevia is fast becoming the natural sweetener of choice preferred by consumers globally, as seen by the switch from chemically made sweeteners to natural ingredients like stevia.
