What is Stevia?

Stevia (Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni) is a plant indigenous to the tropics of South and Central America, known worldwide as “sweet leaf”. Stevia leaves have been used to sweeten foods and drinks for at least 600 years. Nowadays it is very popular in Japan and other Asian countries, in the United States and South America. In Greece, Stevia is still cultivated experimentally. However, it is expected to undergo systematic cultivation in the immediate future.
