'The name “stevia” commonly refers to sweeteners derived from the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni. Long before stevia gained popularity as an alternative sweetener, Stevia rebaudiana leaves were used by indigenous South Americans to sweeten beverages and medicines. 

The glycosides responsible for its sweet taste were isolated in 1931 and were later incorporated into stevia-based sweeteners.'
