Stevia rebaudiana is a small shrub native to Paraguay and Brazil. A South American scientist named Antonia Bertoni who learned of the herb from the Guarani Paraguayan Indians first documented Stevia's use in 1887. Stevia was known locally as Kaa'-he-e which means "honeyleaf". Since that time scientists have been unraveling the mysteries of Stevia and have perfected the alcohol extraction of a white crystalline compound called stevioside. Stevioside is the component of stevia that has been attributed to the unique qualities of this traditional herbal product. Now Foods has concentrated the steviosides in this extract product and packaged their stevia in convenient single serving packets.
