Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni ? chemical composition and functional properties

Abstract

Sweetleaf (Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni), currently investigated by many researchers, has been known and used for more than a thousand years indigenous tribes of South America, who called it “kaa-hee” (“sweet herb”). Thanks to its chemical composition and processability sweetleaf may be an alternative for synthetic sweeteners. Nutritional and health-promoting aspects of Stevia rebaudiana are presently being studied in many research centres. The aim of this study is to present nutritional and health-promoting value of the still-little known sweetleaf.

Keywords: Stevia, Stevia rebaudiana, chemical composition
