Stevioside vs Rebaudiosides: Clearing Up the Confusion:Many stevia consumers complain about a liquorice aftertaste caused by their
stevia concentrate products. This unfortunate experience can be
eliminated with a little knowledge learned regarding stevia There are
large differences between stevia products. First in the variety of
product, Stevia spoonable (white in color)...a blend of stevia
concentrate and a bulking agent...quality depends on the ingredients
used by the manufacturer...try to avoid those with more than two or
three ingredients....HerbCare Supreme Spoonable has only two...high quality stevia concentrate and inulin derived from chicory.
is also natural stevia powder (green) This is the whole stevia leaf
ground up and has a strong aftertaste which cannot be removed...it is
the most natural form of stevia with the most nutrient value however
most people do not like the strong taste...it can also be acquired
un-ground in a "tea" cut which is good for adding to herbal tea
There is liquid stevia, a blend of stevia
concentrate and water ...some manufacturers will add other ingredients
be sure to check labels...you can make your own liquid at a fraction
the cost of the pre-made by simply blending concentrate with warm
purified water and adding to a dropper bottle...
there is the pure Stevia Concentrate itself (white) ...the quality can
vary hugely and this is where it becomes a little tricky...
getting to technical the basic reason is that within a stevia leaf
there are four major sweetening components...one which is well known is
stevioside...you will see some people boasting 80% stevioside in their
product and may think this is a high quality powder but that is
misleading...what you want to look for is a high content of
Rebaudioside A...preferably 80% minimum...Of the four sweet components
within the stevia leaf studies have proved Rebaudioside A has the
sweetest , purest taste. It only makes up about 3-4% of the
leaf...stevioside is approx 17% ...
is the most widely used in N. America because it is less expensive and
more readily available. In Japan where stevia is consumed widely they
use almost exclusively the Rebaudioside A leaving the more bitter
stevioside to be used in pet food where the consumer (Fluffy, Fido, Spot
etc) is not as concerned with aftertaste.
HerbCare Stevia Supreme Concentrate
has a minimum Rebaudioside A content of 80%
...making it a clean, pure
and incredibly sweet taste, (approx 300x the sweetness of sugar) .
purchasing a stevia concentrate do not be fooled by claims of 80% or 90
% stevioside...to avoid disappointment in this wonderful, healthy and
natural herb ask what the Rebaudioside A content is!
We offer only the highest Reb A content stevia...pure sweetness!
