Description
 
Stevia is an herb with a very long historical legacy. Stevia has been used for 1500 years by the Guarani Indians of Paraguay as a soothing tonic for the stomach and as a healing concentrate when cooked in water.

Stevia was first introduced to Europe in 1899 by M. S. Bertoni. Since then, hundreds of scientific tests have been performed on the leaves, which have been found to contain, among other nutrients, Vitamin C, calcium, beta-carotene, chromium, iron, magnesium, niacin, potassium, and silicon, along with fiber and protein. It is the intensely strong glycosides, referred to as steviosides (produced within the leaves), which make stevia so powerfully sweet to the tastebuds. Research has shown that the body does not digest or metabolize these glycosides. They are not converted into glucose in the body and therefore have a glycemic index of 0.

We love adding Stevia powder to our smoothies. It adds a beautifully delicate flavor and brings extra nutrients to whatever blend it's used in.
Storage: Due to the Beeyoutiful's Herbs and Bulk Foods being organic or wildcrafted, there is a slight chance that there could be some naturally occurring bugs. Beeyoutiful takes precautions on our end to minimize the chances, but we do suggest that you store them in a cold area - possibly the freezer - in an air tight container.

Great product, Great Value August 14, 2015
Reviewer: Hannah  
This is the first time we've gotten dried stevia.  It is a great price for a great product.  I used it to make an extract and also ground it to use stevia powder.  Would definitely recommend it.

Cut Leaf Stevia January 24, 2014
Reviewer: Website customer  
I was very sorry to learn that you will not be carrying this product any more after the current stock is gone. You are a great company to do business with and I use Stevia all the time to brew with my tea. Your prices are fair and your service very good.

I am very happy with what I received and January 10, 2014
Reviewer: Patricia  
I just received my first package of stevia leaves and brewed a cup of peach rooibus tea and included stevia leaves. The result was sweet and delicious! Does anyone know if you can put these leaves into a smoothie to make it sweet - or will it leave hard little leaves in my smoothie drink?
