What is Stevia?
Stevia Rebaudiana (commonly called stevia) belongs to the chrysanthemum plant family. It is native to South and Central America, but is now is grown in over 20 countries. It is tall and leafy, growing up to one meter high. The leaves contain steviol glycosides (see ‘What are steviol glycosides?’ for more information) that are high intensity natural sweeteners, 200-300 times sweeter than that of sugar. Stevia is a popular ingredient used in a variety of food products in many established markets, for example Japan, where Stevia has been used for more than 30 years.



Is it safe to consume CSR Smart?
Yes, stevia is natural and 100% safe to consume. Stevia was thoroughly tested by the Food Standards Australia & New Zealand, before it was approved for use in the food supply chain in 2008.

Is CSR Smart suitable for people with diabetes, for young children and for pregnant and breastfeeding women?
Yes. Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) conducted a comprehensive risk assessment prior to approving addition of Stevia to the Australian food supply and concluded that steviol glycosides are well tolerated and unlikely to have adverse effects on health at doses up to 11 mg/kg body weight (bw) per day. They specifically examined any potential adverse risk to children and concluded “there are no public health and safety concerns for steviol glycosides when used as a food additive at the maximum levels proposed”. However, if you have any health concerns please check with your healthcare professional.

Is CSR Smart available in different sugar variants e.g. white sugar, icing sugar etc..?
CSR Smart is currently available as a fine raw sugar blend (500g pack) and as a white sugar blend (500g pack).

Can CSR Smart be used in baking? Can it be used in making both hot and cold recipes?
CSR Smart is heat stable and is therefore suitable as a low calorie alternative in both hot and cold recipes. As it is twice as sweet as regular sugar, you only need to use half as much, so you cannot replace sugar in all recipes with CSR Smart sugar. CSR have therefore developed a range of delicious recipes using the new Smart White and Smart Raw sugar blends, so you can enjoy great tasting, lighter treats.
