This bushy herb produces long pointed green leaves. The leaves have a naturally sweet flavor that is a sugar alternative.
Stevia is a common sugar free sweetener. Try pulling off a leaf and biting into it for a burst of sweetness!
Stevia rebaudiana is a native plant to Brazil and Paraguay where it was used for more than 1,500 years by the Guaraní people. It has been used for medicines but most commonly has been used as a sweetener which is how it got its name ka'a he'ê, or "sweet herb". Stevia is the sweetest substance found in nature and is 300 times sweeter than cane sugar. Despite this extraordinary amount of sweetness, it contains a special sugar that has no calories. There are over 200 varieties of Stevia but we have selected this one because it offers the sweetest flavor. You can use these rich green leaves to sweeten drinks, dishes, or a quick cure to a sweet tooth. Its leaves can be added to any recipe in place of sugar to offer a uniquely healthy way to sweeten your life.
