Herbal Select Organic Stevia Extract Details

Herbal Select Organic Stevia Extract Product Description:

This is the most potent of the stevia extracts containing a minimum of 85% steviosides. It is also versatile as it can be used for a variety of applications. The recommended use as a flavour enhancer is 1/32 teaspoon (1/4 of 1/8 teaspoon) per cup of liquid. This pure, fine, white powder is produced through a commercial process that consists of water extraction from dried leaves followed by clarification and crystallization.

Stevia rebaudiana is a small shrub native to South America which is known for its sweet tasting leaves. The leaf extract contains steviosides which are very sweet tasting and non-caloric, but also have beneficial effects on health. It has also been shown in humans that steviosides reduce postprandial blood glucose in type 2 diabetics, indicating improved glucose metabolism.

There are multiple hypoglycemic effects of stevioside, one of which is a dose-dependent reduction in phosphoenol pyruvate carboxykinase (PEPCK). Reducing the level of PEPCK decreases hepatic glucose production and improves glucose metabolism. Stevioside also acts directly on pancreatic beta cells to increase blood sugar stabilizer secretion.
