Constituents of Stevia

Do you know what all constituents are present in a healthy Stevia leaf?

Dried extracts ‘Steviol glycoside’are white to slight yellowish, crystalline, odourless, slight characteristic odour, water-soluble powders.

Stevia extracts generally contain a high percentage of the glycosides of the diterpene steviol. Stevioside and rebaudioside A are the principal sweetening compounds and are generally accompanied by smaller amounts of other steviol glycosides.
