“I have been drinking Stevia for about 2 months, a friend of mine recommended it to me, she said it has a very natural flavour. Before I used to use sweeteners but they leave a slightly metallic flavour and really the food or infusions did not have such a good taste like they have with this substance, it really is very nice.”

“The Guarani used it to sweeten their infusions, from there the oral tradition gave credit to the value of the plant and then at one point it was the Japanese that were the first to take the plant and turn it into a consumable. And now today it offers the perspective that not only the Japanese market is offering a demand for this product, but also the American market, the European market.”

“In reality the properties have been known for a long time, but now recently it is like they are fashionable or are in the focus much more after many investigations recently that have taken place. It is as a result of the fact they contain a glycoside, that’s a sugar which is called rebaudioside-A and for instance the plants that Biofabrica produce they have a major content of rabaudioside-A. And what does rebaudioside-A contain; it’s what gives the sweetness element to this plant, its origins are all natural, it has no additive, nothing, they are not artificially improved. They produce from themselves this sweetness and they have zero calories.”
