Sugar Free Green Stevia Powder, also known as steviol glycosides, is an extract from the leaves of stevia. It contains no sugar and calories, and is known as the "third sugar source in the world." Stevia is white to slightly yellow in color and has a suitable taste without peculiar smell. It is a sweetener that has been discovered in the world and approved by the Ministry of Health of my country. Its natural low calorific value is very close to the taste of sucrose. Stevia is the third natural sweetener with development value and health respect after sugar cane and beet sugar, it is a new sugar source with broad development prospects.


Sugar Free Green Stevia Powder is easily soluble in water and ethanol, and when mixed with sucrose, fructose, glucose, maltose, etc., not only the sweetness of steviol glycosides is more pure, but also the sweetness can have a synergistic effect. Steviol glycosides are resistant to heat and light, which are very stable in the pH range of 3-10, and easy to store.

The stability of the solution is good, and it is still very stable under heat treatment in the pH range of general beverages and foods. Steviol glycosides do not change much when stored in organic acid solutions containing sucrose for half a year; they do not decompose in acid-base media to prevent fermentation, discoloration and precipitation.

Steviol glycosides have a pure sweetness, cool and long, taste similar to white sugar, and the sweetness is about 150 to 300 times that of sucrose. Among them, the purified rebaudioside A sugar is about 450 times sweeter than sucrose and has a better taste.

Sugar Free Green Stevia Powder

The dissolution temperature of steviol glycosides has a great relationship with sweetness and taste. Generally, the sweetness is high when dissolved at low temperature; the taste is good after being dissolved at high temperature but the sweetness is low. When it is used with citric acid, malic acid, tartaric acid, lactic acid, amino acid, etc., it has a killing effect on the aftertaste of steviol glycosides. Therefore, mixed use with the above substances can have a corrective effect and improve the sweetness quality of steviol glycosides.

The main application:

Sugar Free Green Stevia Powder is a natural low-calorie sweetener. The calorific value of stevioside is only 1/300 of that of sucrose. It is not absorbed by the human body and does not produce calories. It is a sweetener suitable for patients with diabetes and obesity.

When stevioside is mixed with cane sugar or isomerized sugar, it can increase its sweetness and improve its taste.
