INCI: Stevia rebaudiana
Stevia or sweet herb is a peppermint-like plant from the border region between Paraguay and Brazil. For centuries Stevia rebaudiana has been used by the indigenous peoples of Brazil and Paraguay as a sweetener and medicine. The Guaraní Indians call it ka'a he'ê (sweet herb) and use it to sweeten their mate tea.
At present, we source the raw material exclusively from an Asociacion (Cooperative) in Paraguay. Thus we support the indigenous population of Paraguay.
Its ingredients are mainly used as a sugar substitute in Asia, often called stevioside.
