Make your own natural powdered sugar by grinding leaves in a mixer grinder. Stevia is an all-natural sweetener with zero calories, zero carbohydrates and a zero glycaemic index & pharmaceutical properties therefore key source sweetener for the diabetic world.   With no calories and very little bitter aftertaste, stevia is an excellent alternative sweetener to sugar for teas, soft drink, confectionery, bakery etc. As a supplement to the diet, natural Stevia Rebaudiana reduces one's craving for sweets and fats, and "turn off" hunger sensations.   The plant Stevia rebaudiana has been used for more than 1,500 years by the Guarani people of South America who called it ka'a he'ê ("sweet herb"). The leaves have been used traditionally for hundreds of years in both Brazil and Paraguay to sweeten local teas and medicines, and as a "sweet treat".   Stevia rebaudiana (Bertoni) was discovered by Europeans in Paraguay in 1888 by Dr.M.S.Bertoni. He later botanically described and named the plant (1905) in honour of Paraguayan chemist Dr. Rebaudi.   Stevia possesses medicinal properties due to the presence of phytochemicals. It is sweet due to the presence of glycosides.
