The Stevia (Stevia Rebaudiana)
is a plant originating in the North of South America, used since hundreds of years by populations of Brazil and Paraguay as a sweetener.
It has been also consumed in Japan for more than 25 years when it replaces very advantageously, in all the “light” products, aspartam (which is a violent neurotoxic poison
) which is formally not allowed there.
