Description

Stevia is an artificial sweetener made from an African shrub. It may have a distinctive bitter or licorice-like taste at higher concentrations. Stevia is marketed in the United States as a dietary supplement. Two studies in China have shown promising results for helping persons suffering from obesity or high blood sugar. The safety of the use of stevia by pregnant or lactating mothers is unknown. Updated: 04.27.17
