Stevia rebaudiana is a small plant native to Paraguay and Brazil.  In 1887, its usage was recorded by a natural scientist named Antonio Bertoni who learned of the herb from the Guarani Paraguayan Indians.  The Guarani Paraguayan Indians traditionally used Stevia rebaudiana to flavor bitter tribal beverages.

Two French chemists named Bridel and Lavieille began to unravel the secret of Stevia in 19 with exploratory 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.  Our Stevia Extract is based on this research.

Inulin is a fructooligosaccharide derived from chicory.  As a prebiotic, it stimulates the growth of friendly intestinal flora to support good colon health.* It has a low glycemic index making it suitable for persons on certain types of restricted diets.

Chromium is a trace mineral that is significantly reduced in the American diet due to the over processing of our foods.  It is involved in a number of important bodily functions and is an effective synergist for Stevia and Inulin.
