Sweet news from Paraguay


Stevia – or Ka'a He'e (sweet herb) - is a natural, calorie-free sweetener known in Paraguay since hundreds of years. Over the past 7 years, the sweetener’s popularity has increased not only as an alternative for people diagnosed with diabetes, obesity and heart disease, but also as a feasible alternative in a market where prices for more traditional sweeteners have augmented as a result of growing global demand. Since 2009, the MIF’s High Value Markets team has been working with the Paraguayan Stevia Chamber (CAPASTE) on a project aimed at improving the competitiveness of the Stevia value chain in Paraguay.
