- ... Stevioside, a potent sweetener obtained from leaves of Stevia rebaudiana (Bertoni), is the glycone of steviol. However, despite its natural origin, there has been concern about stevioside toxicity due to hydrolysis to the carcinogenic steviol. To approve it as an additive, the FAO/WHO committee on food additives has required further information about hydrolytic stability of the steviol glycoside i ...

- ... In the present work, the efficiency of different nitrogen doses (0, 50, 100, 150, and 200 kg ha⁻¹) on growth, yield, and quality of stevia (Stevia rebaudiana Bert.) was investigated in 2011–2013. The study was conducted in Antalya located in the Mediterranean Region of Turkey. Terra rossa type soil (LVx, FAO) characteristics of the experimental field were clay loam, with high amounts of lime (33,9 ...
