Honey stevia (Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni.) Is a perennial herb, the leaves of which have a very sweet taste. This is a unique medicinal plant that heals the body. Since stevia leaves are sweeter than sugar in 30 times they are used as a natural harmless sweetener. The sweetness of stevia provides stevioside - a substance of non-carbohydrate origin i.e. glucose free. Stevioside is absorbed in the body without insulin, therefore stevia is an indispensable product for diabetics.
