The plant Stevia rebaudiana is well known due to the sweet-tasting entkaurene diterpenoid glycosides. Stevioside and rebaudioside A are the most abundant and best analysed, but more than 30 additional steviol glycosides have been described in the scientific literature to date. Most of them were detected in the last years.



PerBendix JeppesenThe United Nations has recently declared that, for the first time in human history, chronic non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes pose a greater health burden worldwide than do infectious diseases, contributing to 35 million deaths annually. This discovery of stevia sweeteners has been designated as the second sugar revolution. The steviol glycoside sweetener is a natural sweetener extracted from the Stevia plant and may protect against development of metabolic syndrome, due to the non-caloric content.
