Additional Information: Steviosides are becoming a potential natural sweetener for the diabetic and obese due to their biological and chemical properties. It has been well established that steviosides have non-caloric, non-mutagenic, antihyperglycemic, antihypertensive and anti dental caries properties. There is an increasing demand for the pure steviosides in the world market today and in view of this, we have developed methodologies for the downstream processing of steviosides from Stevia rebaudiana. Spray dried sample can be used in various food formulations as a spoonable material and the steviosides crystals can also be used in various kinds of beverages and food industries as well as in pharmaceutical industry. In the present study a method was developed for the extraction and purification of steviosides from S. rebaudiana and also the possible growth regulating properties of steviosides. However, the use of steviosides as a growth regulator has to be verified and established by further studies.
Uncontrolled Keywords: Steviosides natural sweetener Stevia rebaudiana
