STEVIA MaxSød is a food sweetener based on steviol glycoside (a sweet substance from the stevia plant (Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni).
STEVIA MaxSød is 200-400 sweeter than sugar and has no calories - which makes it a useful alternative to sugar for cooking and baking.
The Stevia rebaudiana plant is native to Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. It grows on the fringes of swamps or permanently moist meadows. For centuries, the native people of these countries, guaranis, have used the plant as a sweetener.
The sweet substances are extracted from the plant without any use of chemicals. In Japan, stevia is a household product - almost half of the Japanese "sugar" consumption is made up of stevia.
