Stevia: A Comprehensive Review on Ethnopharmacological Properties and In Vitro Regeneration

  title={Stevia: A Comprehensive Review on Ethnopharmacological Properties and In Vitro Regeneration},
  author={Saikat Gantait and Arpita Das and Nirmal Mandal},
  journal={Sugar Tech},
The present review illustrates the pharmacological properties and production of planting materials through in vitro organogenesis of Stevia rebaudiana (Bertoni). The plant is native to Paraguay; however, the main producers of stevia are Japan, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Korea, Brazil, Malaysia and India. This plant is recorded as having a non-caloric natural sugar, alternative to artificially produced sugar substitutes and hence traditionally has been used to sweeten beverages.
