Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana) also known as “sweet umbrella leaf” or “ya-wan” in Thai language. This is one of a family of plants that are native to South America and have been used for centuries to sweeten drinks and foods. Nowadays it successfully adapted, largely cultivated and used in Thailand, as well as in other Asia countries. Japan is th biggest consumer in the world, with stevia accounting for 40% of the sweetener market.
This herb contains 6-12% stevioside, which is about 300 times sweeter than sucrose while containing only 1/300 the calories.

To date, chemical analysis and studies show that the leaf adds no calories, has no harmful side effects and is more palatable with less aftertaste than any artificial, chemical sweetener to date.
