Abstract


Steviosi de is extracted from the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni (asteraceae or compositae) plant. Due to its sweet taste it is used as a natural non caloric sweetener. These glycosides are 300 times sweeter than sugar and also exhibit wide therapeutic activity. Stevia plants are also rich in carbohydrates (61.93% d.w), protein(11.41% d.w), crude fibre (15.52% d.w), minerals(K-21.15; Ca-17.7; Na-14.93; Mg-3.26 mg/100gm d.w; Cu-0.73; Mn-2.89; Fe-5.89; Zn-1.26 mg/100gm d.w) and also essential amino acids. It is used as a substitute for sucrose in food & beverages in many countries. In the present experiment isolation of stevioside from stevia le aves had been done by low cost methods. Isolated stevioside was analyzed by TLC method. The RF values of TLC were 0.50 & 0.67.
