Stevia rebaudiana, commonly known as stevia, is a perennial herbaceous plant belonging to the Asteraceae family.
Native to Paraguay and Brazil, the plant has gained global attention for its sweet leaves, which can be attributed to compounds known as steviol glycosides.
These compounds, specifically stevioside and rebaudioside A, are responsible for the plant’s sweetness, which can be up to 300 times sweeter than sucrose.
Over the past few decades, stevia has become increasingly popular worldwide as a natural alternative to artificial sweeteners and sugars.
Due to its zero-calorie content and negligible impact on blood glucose levels, it's particularly favorable for those watching their weight or managing diabetes.

However, as with all substances, it's essential for users to consume stevia in moderation and be aware of potential allergies or sensitivities.
