Description

The leaves of the plant are a natural sweetener. Stevia is 300 times sweeter than sugar and is non-glycemic, calorie free and carbohydrate free. The USDA has approved its use as a dietary supplement. One plant yields approximately ½ pound of dried leaves. A little goes a long way.  The leaves are sweetest just before the plant flowers in late summer to fall. Cooler temperatures and short days intensify the sweet flavor.
