Refining and purifying extract from the leaves from the Stevia herb plant produce Stevia powder. Of all the products extracted from the Stevia plant, Stevia powder is the most powerfully sweet. The white Stevia powder can be mixed with water to create liquid Stevia, which can be used sparingly in baking and cooking.
The intense sweetness of Stevia powder means that only small amounts are needed when compared to those used for sugar. Stevia powder is so sweet, in fact, that it is used only by the pinch. Even when Stevia powder is mixed with water to create a liquid, the liquid is measured by the drop.
The white Stevia powder is the most popular sweetener substitute in Japan. Stevia powder has been used in Japan for over forty years, as other sweeteners such as aspartame have been made illegal because they are considered harmful.
Differences in sweetness and cost of Stevia powders result from differences in refinement processes and plant quality. Less refined Stevia powders sometimes possess a very bitter, almost liquorice-like, aftertaste. The higher quality Stevia powder has a sweetness that is most like an intense, concentrated sugar, which is why it has become a well-regarded sugar substitute. This is also why the concentrated Stevia powder is so incredibly sweet that it must be measured “by the pinch,” as opposed to sugar which is measured by the cup.
