Stevia is a perennial plant used for centuries as a natural sweetener in South America. In 2008 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved stevia extract Reb-A for use in the USA. In less than a year, stevia’s U.S. sales had passed sales figures for saccharine and aspartame. Today, stevia is found in over 6,000 products including beverages, foods and medicines, and this number is growing rapidly as stevia heads towards mass commoditization like sugar and high fructose corn syrup.
