INTRODUCTION

ABOUT STEVIA


Stevia (STEVIA REBAUDIANA) leaves have functional and sensory properties superior to those of many other high potency sweeteners. Stevia is likely to become a major source of high potency sweetener for the growing natural food market in the future. Although Stevia can be helpful to anyone, there are certain groups who are more likely to benefit from its remarkable sweetening potential. These include diabetics, those interested in decreasing caloric intake, and children.

Origin of Stevia Rebaudiana is in central Paraguay where it grows near the ponds and streams in wild conditions. Native Paraguayans have been consuming this herb in large quantities for many centuries. It was only during early fifties that Japanese stumbled upon this unique herb and took it to Japan where they have developed many varieties of this wonderful herb for large scale cultivation The leaves of this plant are 30 times sweeter than sugar , with zero calories. Where as pure extract is 300 times sweeter than sugar.

Stevia Rebaudiana is a small perennial growing up to 65-80 cm tall, with sessile, oppositely arranged leaves. Different species of Stevia contain several potential sweetening compounds, with Stevia Rebaudiana being the sweetest of all. Stevia is a semi-humid subtropical plant that can be grown easily like any other vegetable crop even in the kitchen garden. The soil should be in the pH range of 6.5- 7.5; well-drained red soil and sandy loam soil. Saline soils should be avoided to cultivate this plant.

STEVIA - ITS CURRENT TREND AND FUTURE MARKET

Today let’s talk about Stevia’s current trend in the global market and its future prospects.

The below studies by different international market research companies talk about Stevia’s exponential growth.

The Nielsen based data shows that stevia is a rapidly growing industry and that stevia is developing into a broadly mainstream ingredient in foods and beverages.

Global market for stevia will reach 11,000 tons by 2014 requiring tripling (three times) of stevia leaf production at the farm level.

Indian Market:  An estimated 10 to 20 per cent people in India have diabetes; the market for low-calorie sweeteners is at least 25 per cent if one combines the obese and weight conscious consumers with diabetics.  At 50.8 million, India had one of the largest diabetic populations in FY10. With an improvement in health awareness, the diagnostic and usage rates are likely to increase, leading to a rise in the number of diabetics consuming artificial sweeteners from 2.96 million FY10 to 9.6mn in FY15.
