So, what is steviol-glycoside?

Steviol-glycosides are a group of sweeteners derived from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant. They are up to 350 times sweeter than sugar, yet contain no calories, making them a popular natural sweetener in many food and beverage products. Steviol-glycosides have a clean, sweet taste without the bitter aftertaste sometimes associated with artificial sweeteners. They are heat-stable and can be used in cooking and baking. Some studies suggest that steviol-glycosides may have health benefits, including anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, although further research is needed to confirm these claims.
