Stevia is a small perennial plant native to Central and South America 
with a long and storied history.  The Spanish conquistadors found out 
about Stevia during their sixteenth century exploration of Central America. 
They reported that the natives used the leaves of this herb to counteract
the bitter taste of a popular community drink, mate, and also used it as
an herbal remedy for various ailments.

In 1887, Antonio Bertoni, a South American scientist, observed Indians
of the Guarani tribe of Paraguay who used Stevia to flavor bitter tribal 
beverages.  Bertoni erroneously classified Stevia as a member of the
daisy family, but it was later re-assigned to the chrysanthemum family
in 1905.  Twenty-five years later, two French chemists conducting
research on Stevia isolated the primary constituents responsible for
Stevia's properties and named them steviosides. 
Our Stevia Exttract is based on this research.

Today, Stevia is cultivated in over a dozen countries worldwide.  
It is a major export product and is widely used in countries such as
China, Brazil, North and South Korea, Taiwan, Israel, Paraguay
and Malaysia.  Stevia has also been grown successfully in California, 
southern Ontario, Canada and even southern England.  Although there
are several different species of Stevia, the most potent and effective
seems to be Stevia rebaudiana, and this species is used in most 
dietary supplements on the market today.
