Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni) is a plant used for many years by indigenous people of South America, mainly Paraguay. Until now, more than 200 types of stevia have been known, however, the variety rebudiana Bertonii is characterized by the best properties, both as for sweetness and pro-health effect.
Bioactive substances in stevia
The most important ingredients of stevia are glycosides, which are responsible for its sweet taste. These compounds, depending on crop, may constitute from 4 to 20% of fresh leaves’ mass. Nine steviol glycosides have been identified, out of which two are the most meaningful – stevioside and rebaudioside A.
Stevioside is a substances most abundantly occurring in stevia leaves. It is estimated that it is around 300 times sweeter than sugar. Moreover, this compound is stable in high temperature, does not provide energy, does not undergo fermentation and exerts protective influence on tooth enamel. Rebaudioside A appears in the plant in lower amounts, however, it is distinguished by higher sweetness – 200-400 times sweeter than sugar.
Stevioside and rebaudioside A are not decomposed in the digestive tract by digestive enzymes. These compounds are hydrolyzed by intestinal bacteria to steviol, which then penetrates to blood. This substance is not stored in the organism and is quickly excreted, mainly with urine.
In the composition of stevia there are not only the substances responsible for its sweet taste, but also the ingredients having a positive influence on the organism. The plant contains also i.a. flavonoids, alkaloids, chlorophylls, xanthophylls and essential oils as well as minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, sodium, phosphorus, iron, copper, manganese, selenium, sulfur and vitamins (vitamin C , thiamin, riboflavin, folic acid).
