Stevia is an all natural zero calorie sweetener extracted from the herb stevia rebaudiana. Stevia occasionally goes by the names sweetleaf or sugarleaf, and with good reason! Stevia rebaudiana is a naturally super sweet herb that contains substances called "glycosides" which are responsible for the natural sweet flavour of stevia.
NOW Foods Stevia extract is approximately 200-300x sweeter than table sugar by weight. While many stevia products on the market can in fact have a bitter aftertaste, NOW Foods Stevia sweetener is carefully formulated to contain only the non bitter glycosides of stevia and thus has no bitter aftertaste. If you're looking to buy stevia we offer stevia in pure powder extract form, soluble tablets, sachets and even liquid extracts.
