From plant to product
Extracting the steviol glycoside sweetener from the stevia plant is no piece of cake. For this purpose, an elaborate process is necessary in which, in simple terms, the water is first removed from the leaves. The steviol glycosides are then purified and filtered. The crystallised and dried steviol glycosides are mixed with natural aromas. This is necessary because Stevia has a peculiar flavour, which some people find unpleasant. The mixture with natural aromas gives SteviaSweet its rounded, sugar-like taste.
