Stevia Reb-A (Stevia Extract) is an all-natural sweetener extracted from the stevia leaf that is used to heighten sweetening intensity and improve the taste. The stevia rebaudiana plant contains a high percentage of steviol glycoside (stevioside) and rebaudiana A, C, D & F. The filtration and purification process of stevia extract affect the quality, characteristics, concentration and taste.
The Stevioside has a liquorice aftertaste while Rebaudioside-A has no aftertaste and is considered the best-tasting form. Rebaudioside A can be further filtered and purified up to 99%. That’s why Rebaudiana-A is more expensive. The more purified and concentrated, the less bitter and sweeter it is.
When you see Stevia 90 or 95% Stevioside on the label, it doesn’t mean it’s a good quality or it has no bitterness and aftertaste. Stevioside has an aftertaste even if it is 99% purified, but Rebaudioside A does not possess an aftertaste and has a sweetness flavour comparable to sugar.
