DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STEVIA REBAUDIOSIDE A AND STEVIOSIDE
Stevioside and Rebaudioside are the sweet components of Stevia.
If the plant is refined, a white powder or a clear liquid is obtained.
Stevioside is the first extraction and has a maximum purity of 90° with an aftertaste of licorice . Its sweetening power is 180 times that of sugar, i.e. 1 g of Stevioside is equivalent to 180 g of white sugar.
A second extraction from stevioside allows to obtain and isolate Stevia Rebaudioside A, also known as Rebaudiana.
Rebaudiana A is 97% pure, it has no licorice aftertaste and its sweetening power is 350 times that of sugar, i.e. 1 g of Rebaudioside is equivalent to 350 g of white sugar.
