Stevia also contains a wealth of antioxidant compounds, including flavonoids, triterpenes, tannins, caffeic acid, kaempferol, and quercetin. With the rising awareness and a large number of health benefits associated with its consumption, consumers are widely substituting sugar with stevia. Numerous food and beverage manufacturers are also utilizing it in coffee, tea, smoothies and yogurt to offer products with a lower calorie count.
