Stevia rebaudiana is a small plant native to Paraguay and Brazil. It was discovered in 1887 by a South American scientist named Antonio Bertoni who learned of the herb from the Guarani Paraguayan Indians who used it to flavor bitter tribal beverages.
Two French chemists named Bridel and Lavieille began to unravel the secret of stevia in 1931 with explatory extraction work on Stevia rebaudiana leaves. Their research yielded a pure, white, crystalline compound they named stevioside which is responsible for stevia's flavorful properties.
Inulin is a fructooligosaccharide derived from chicory. As a prebiotic, it stimulates the growth of friendly intestinal bacteria to support good colon health. It has a low glycemic index making it suitable for persons on certain types of restricted diets. Add it to your favorite food or beverage for a delightfully sweet taste.
Chromium is a trace mineral that is significantly reduced in the American diet due to the overprocessing of our foods. It is involved in a number of important bodily functions and is an effective synergist for Stevia and Inulin.
