More – Herb Sweeter Than Sugar

  • May 12, 2008 provides information about Stevia, the herb that is sweeter than sugar.

If you ever tasted Stevia, you know it is extremely sweet. It is native to Paraguay, and has been used as a sweetener and flavor enhancer for centuries. But it also has been a focal point of intrigue in the United States in recent years because of addictions by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The subject of searches and seizures, trade complaints and embargoes on importation, Stevia has been handled at times by the FDA as if it were an illegal drug. Since the passage of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, Stevia can be sold legally in the United States, buy only as a “dietary supplement.” Even so, it can be found in many forms in most health-food stores, and is also incorporated into drinks, teas and other items, but all labeled as “dietary supplements”. The website offers some categories where you can find more information about Stevia; these categories are History of Use, Growing Stevia, Order Stevia, Recipes and Tips, Safety Studies, and more.
