Directions on the use of stevia leaves (Stevia Rebauidana) as an additive in food products

Abstract

Due to the high intake of sugars, especially sucrose, global trends in food processing have encouraged producers to use sweeteners, particularly synthetic ones, to a wide extent. For several years, increasing attention has been paid in the literature to the stevia (Stevia rebauidana), containing glycosidic diterpenes, for which sweetening properties have been identified. Chemical composition, nutritional value and application of stevia leaves are briefly summarized and presented.

Keywords: stevia, Stevia rebaudiana, health effect, stevioside, rebaudioside, sweetener
