Description

This best-selling book is a wonderful introduction to the herbal sweetener Stevia. An all-natural, noncaloric, nonglycemic ingredient, Stevia is extracted from the leaves of the “Honey-Leaf” plant, and provides a healthful way to sweeten foods and beverages. Stevia Rebaudiana includes discussions of the plant’s history, botany, pharmacology, correct usage, and safety, as well as nearly two dozen Stevia recipes. A helpful question-and-answer chapter addresses commonly asked questions about this sweetener, and instructions are provided for growing Stevia in your home garden.
