What’s Rebaudioside D?
Rebaudioside D, a glycoside of the diterpene steviol is a minor constituent found in leaves of Stevia rebaudiana. It is considered non-caloric and is about 200–350 times sweeter than sucrose. Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni is a sweet and nutrient-rich plant belonging to the Asteraceae family. Stevia leaves contain steviol glycosides including stevioside, rebaudioside (A to F), steviolbioside, and isosteviol, which are responsible for the plant's sweet taste, and have commercial value all over the world as a sugar substitute in foods, beverages and medicines.
Health Benefits of Reb D
Among the 30 steviol glycosides in Stevia rebaudiana, Reb A is present in the highest levels, while Reb D is found only in very low concentrations (about 0.2%) in the plant's dried leaves
Reb D and has significantly more sweetness and less bitterness at high usage levels than the traditional Reb A.
Reb D, by contrast to existing stevia sweeteners, offers a sweet taste close to that of sugar and is free of the aftertaste of Reb-A, which has been used by the food and beverage industry for many years. The Reb D molecule is easy to work with and is 300 times sweeter than sugar. Formulators can reduce the sugar content of their products without sacrificing taste.
