HISTORY: Stevia is a small perennial plant native to Central and South America with a longand storied history. The spanish conquistadors are credited with Stevias initial discoveryduring their sixteenth century exploration of Central America. They reported that the nativesused the leaves of this herb to counteract the bitter taste of a popular community drink, mate,and also used it as an herbal remedy for various ailments.
Antonio Bertoni, a South American scientist, is credited with the modern discovery of Steviain 1887, when he first observed Indians of the Guarani tribe of Paraguay use it to flavor bittertribal beverages. Bertoni erroneously classified Stevia as a member of the daisy family, butit was later re-assigned to the chrysanthemum family in 1905. Twenty-five years later, twoFrench chemists conducting research on Stevia isolated the chemical constituent responsiblefor Stevias flavorful properties and named it stevioside.
Today, Stevia is cultivated in over a dozen countries worldwide. It is a major export productand is widely used in countries such as China, Brazil, North and South Korea, Taiwan, Israel,Paraguay and Malaysia. Stevia has also been grown successfully in California, southernOntario, Canada and even southern England. Although there are several different species ofStevia, the most potent and effective seems to be Stevia rebaudiana, and this species is usedin most dietary supplements on the market today.
