Stevia: The Genus Stevia (Medicinal and Aromatic Plants - Industrial Profiles)

Stevia rebaudiana is a amazing South American plant that has develop into general in definite components of the realm as a usual sweetening agent and nutritional complement. Purified extracts of S. rebaudiana were used as sweeteners and taste enhancers within the nutrition in Japan for over 1 / 4 of a century, and feature been discovered to be as much as three hundred instances sweeter than sucrose.

This complete quantity presents studies at the botany, ethnobotany, and chemical components of the genus Stevia and examines the chemical synthesis of such compounds as steviol and stevioside. The perceived security of those compounds has develop into a little bit debatable lately, and an intensive attention of the pharmacology and organic task is equipped. the ultimate chapters supply a few perception into some of the functions of S. rebaudiana extracts and stevioside in Japan and Korea, the 2 nations with the main vast use of those meals ingredients at present.
Containing a variety of brand new references, the publication will entice a large phase of the medical neighborhood in any respect degrees, particularly these within the fields of traditional items, pharmacy, pharmacognosy, plant technology, agriculture and the nutrients and drinks undefined.
