La Ricerca

Esistono numerosi studi circa le proprietà benefiche della Stevia e gli effetti di un suo utilizzo.

Di seguito troverete una selezione di review (purtroppo in lingua inglese, in attesa di una attendibile produzione di articoli scientifici in italiano), per approfondire la conoscenza della stevia:
