NKD Living’s stevia liquid is a liquid sweetener extracted from the leaves of the stevia plant.The stevia plant has been used for more than 1,500 years by the Guaraní people of Brazil and Paraguay, who refer to it as ka’a he’ê, which means “sweet herb.”
Stevia extract averages about 200 times sweeter than sugar and when it comes to using it, you only need a tiny bit at a time to sweeten your morning tea or next batch of healthy baked goods. The side effects are typically not common, especially if you choose the right product.
STEVIA LIQUID is a sweetener extracted from the leaves of the stevia plant.
The stevia plant (Stevia Rebaudiana) is a leafy, green plant, indigenous to South America and originates from the sunflower family (Asteraceae). It was originally used as a natural sweetener by indigenous populations in Paraguay and Brazil. Stevia is a no -calorie sweetener which is associated with several health benefits.
The sweet component within stevia leaves comes from a group of compounds called steviol glycosides, which are naturally found in the stevia plant. Some commonly used steviol glycosides are rebaudioside A (also known as Red A or Rebiana), rebaudioside D (also known as Red D) and stevioside.
To date, more than 40 different steviol glycosides have been identified in the stevia plant. Each of these steviol glycosides has its own unique taste profile and sweetness intensity, which can be up to 350 times sweeter than sugar, but all share a similar molecular structure where different sugar moieties are attached to aglycone steviol (an ent-kaurene-type diterpene).
Purified stevia leaf extracts can taste different depending on which steviol glycoside is present and manufactures are actively researching the best tasting varieties.
