ステビアは、パラグアイ原産のステビア属の薬草 (Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni) から抽出される天然・低カロリー甘味料です。抽出されたエキスには精製糖の200倍の甘みがあり、様々な分野 (飲料・焼成食品・乳製品・卓上甘味料・サプリメント・加工食品など) で、他の合成甘味料に取って代わりつつあります。また、一部の医薬品やトイレタリー用品、化粧品でも使われています。ステビアは他の合成甘味料と比べて、ゼロカロリー・非毒性・非発酵性・フレーバーとの調和といった点で優れています。また、歯垢・虫歯の予防や、高温 (200℃) での安定性、血糖値上昇の防止といった効果もあります。様々な健康問題 (体重管理・口腔衛生・血糖値管理など) が深刻化するのに伴い、各国政府では砂糖の摂取量の抑制に取り組んでおり、それがステビア需要の将来的な拡大につながると期待されています。
当レポートでは、世界のステビア市場の構造と動向について分析し、全体的な市場規模の推移・見通しや、地域別・エンドユース産業別の詳細動向、主要国における輸出入状況、主な成功・リスク要因、原材料市場の構造・動向、製造工程の概略とマスバランス (物質収支) などについて調査・考察しております。
Stevia is a natural sweetener extracted from a herbal plant species called Stevia Rebaudiana. The active and major compounds in stevia, called Stevioside and Rebaudioside A, are responsible for its sweetness. In South American countries like Paraguay and Brazil, people have used its leaves for over hundreds of years. Besides sweetening the food, the leaves were traditionally used to treat burns, stomach problems, other ailments, etc.
Stevia is a 100% natural and zero-calorie sweetener which is 200 times sweeter than sugar and is known to have various health benefits. Since stevia has a low glycemic index and does not influence blood sugar levels, it is suitable for diabetic patients. Its non-cariogenic nature makes it mild on teeth resulting in good dental health. The growing awareness about the health benefits of stevia over sugar has led to a global increase in its demand because of which it is now commercially grown across the globe. As most of the low-calorie sweeteners available in the market are artificial, the demand for natural sweeteners like stevia has further expanded. Other factors influencing the global demand of stevia are the lifestyle changes, growing disposable income, awareness about maintaining a good health, government initiatives on reducing the sugar intake and the need to combat health problems like obesity and diabetes.
