Stevia Extract (Stevioside) Taste

Stevioside has been reported to have a variety of tastes by users. Some users of stevioside find it to have a grassy taste, and/or licorice taste. Some users say it has a bitter after taste. The grassy taste associated with some stevioside brands is due to the processing, type of plant, and growth cycle they use. High quality premium grade stevioside like JAJA Stevioside™ has a clean, smooth taste.

Getting Pure Stevioside With Clean Taste 

First of all, you have to take the time and use skill to get the taste. Producing high grade stevia plants and stevioside is something you can not rush. That’s the reason most companies don’t get it right. Among the factors producing a pleasant taste are the percentage of steviosides in stevioside. The method of extraction, and as with any natural product other factors including: the strain of plant, the growth period, the growth conditions, among other factors. This means that just because two brands of stevioside have say 92% stevioside they may not taste the same.

Many companies selling stevioside call it stevia. That is not correct. Stevia is the plant (actually it is called stevia rebaudiana bertoni) you can read the history of stevia here.

Sure, But All Stevioside is the Same……Right?

It’s true there are similarities between stevioside products, but it’s the differences which make our JAJA Stevioside the best buy for you. Lets investigate those differences.

JAJA the Best Tasting Pure Stevia in the World

  1. We have been selling stevia and stevioside on the internet since 1995. This means we know stevia and stevioside very well. We are in control of the facility doing the extraction of the stevioside from the stevia leaf. There is a lot of knowledge we have gained. A lot of companies have misconceptions because they don’t understand what they are selling or dealing with.
  2. A longer growing period. The plants used for Honey Stevia Leaf™ and JAJA Stevioside have a longer growing cycle than others. If the farmers growing the plants stevia were not concerned about quality, they would use a rapid growth cycle, lower grade plant. They don’t. Additionally, rather than harvest the plants early, they are harvested at their peak flavor. This means that you get a better taste than others. You will enjoy JAJA Stevioside much more than the other brands, and get better use.
  3. The bad tasting parts of the stevia plant such as roots, stems, and veins, etc. are painstakingly hand separated, leaving only the leaf canvas. This assures you will not get a grassy, licorice, or bitter taste prevalent in the other brands. JAJA Stevioside and Honey Stevia Leaf give you a very pleasant tasting product..
  4. While any Stevioside is an extract from the leaf of the Stevia plant, methods of extraction vary. JAJA Stevioside is extracted using the Natural Aqueous Extraction process (Purified water extraction, Air dehydration). This all natural method of extraction results in a pure white Stevia Powder with no brownish coloring. When dissolved in water it leaves the water completely clear with no sediment at the bottom.
  5. The skill level of the personnel doing the preparation for and the actual extraction is extremely high. They have many years of experience and know how to produce a high quality product.
  6. Emperor’s Herbologist JAJA Stevioside is tested to insure it has minimum 95% steviol glycosides (Steviosides). It is also tested for taste and safety. Any Stevioside that does not meet the standards is destroyed or sold to other companies who are forbidden to label it as JAJA Stevioside. If you are a Diabetic read this.
  7. Our pure stevia extract JAJA Stevioside is unadulterated. Unlike other companies who “cut&” stevia extract (stevioside) with other ingredients. Absolutely nothing is added to our stevia extract. This insures you are getting the best quality, pure product.
  8. Emperors Herbologist JAJA Stevioside is not bleached.
  9. Nothing is added, no fillers, starch, silica, or maltodextrin or aspartame or anything else So you always get consistent high quality.

JAJA Stevioside Safety

Pure stevioside is a completely safe All Natural product that has 0 calories. 0 carbohydrates. 0 fat. 0 sugar. Pure stevioside does not promote cavities, weight gain, affect blood sugar, blood pressure, cause cancer, or have any negative side affects. It actually can reduce the craving for sweets. The US FDA says in their import alert that “Stevioside is reportedly 250-300 times sweeter than sugar and contributes no calories to the diet.”

JAJA Stevioside is subjected to more stringent tolerances, than the vast majority of stevioside on the market. This is to assure you are getting the safest best quality stevioside. Among the tests are testing for stevioside percentage, bacteria counts, pathogens, lead concentrations, and other things that can be harmful. Any stevioside that does not pass the stringent tests is either destroyed, or sold to other companies who are forbidden to label it as JAJA Stevioside. When you buy JAJA Stevioside, you are buying the safest, most qualified, best tasting stevioside of any on the market… Bar None! Read our spec’s.

It has an outstanding taste when compared to other brands 90% or even 96% stevioside. JAJA Stevioside has a vastly superior taste to any on the market. It has been sold in Japan for over 25 years.

Emperor’s Herbologist believes that the best and least expensive form of Stevioside is pure unadulterated stevioside that has nothing added to it. It should be in a very fine powder/crystal form to give you the best value, best taste, and best results.

To understand this, you should realize that unadulterated stevioside is a very light weight, fluffy substance. When you buy stevioside in the liquid form (click here for recipe), the company selling it has taken dry stevioside powder/crystal and mixed it into water and/or alcohol. Water and alcohol weigh far more than stevioside. So in effect you are getting less stevioside at a higher price. The only benefit to buying liquid stevioside is that it is easier to measure the serving size (1 or 2 drops).

Their Dirty Secret — What You Should Know… And How to Avoid Getting Ripped Off

Some companies will use low grade stevioside and mix foreign products into it. Examples we have seen are: maltodextrin (a complex carbohydrate), FOS, silica, and starch. Stevioside does not naturally contain starch, maltodextrin, FOS, or silica, etc.

When carbohydrates are introduced into stevioside it is no longer a carbohydrate free product. Additionally, there are reports of companies mixing artificial sweeteners into stevioside. Why? Adding an artificial sweetener to a low grade stevioside only enhances the company profit, and does nothing for you the consumer.

Business being what it is some companies believe that they can cheat their customers. Companies who do that are also the same type of companies who will copy this information and post it to their sites as their own.

By purchasing stevia leaf direct from the local native Chinese farmers who are independent business people, and processing in China using native Chinese workers in a facility controlled by us to assure quality we are directly supporting the local farmers and improving their lives and the lives of their families. And it is being done ethically.
