There are nearly 300 species of the Stevia family scattered over the region
extending from the southwestern United States to northern Argentina. Of
these, only one ---
Stevia Rebaudiana --- contains the secret of steviosides which make it the
sweetest herb in the world.
This popular book introduces the herbal sweetener, Stevia. An all-natural,
non-caloric, non-glycemic, super-sweet powder (or liquid), Stevia is
extracted from the leaves of the Paraguayan "Honey-Leaf" plant and is used
extensively around the world. Includes sections on the plant's history,
botany, pharmacology, usage and safety --- with nearly two dozen Stevia
recipes. Includes a Q/A section and a new chapter on Growing Your Own
Stevia at home in your kitchen or garden.
