About the Stevia Plant
The stevia plant is a green, leafy plant that is native to South America. Refined Stevia sweetener does not resemble the plant. Stevia sweetener is made from a refined version of the plant’s isolated sweet compounds, ‘stevioside’ and ‘rebaudioside A’. Sometimes Stevia is confused with Truvia®, but Truvia® is a blend of compounds and is a brand name of the Cargill Corporation.
