|Enter the 21st century|
|Stevia got the favour of many countries and was reasearched and studies on the planting of stevia monomer, seperation and extraction of effective components, Biological fermentation production and production application.|
|Stevia got promoted and applied in many fields all over the world. It was widely used in food, medicine and cosmetics.|
Separation and extraction of each component of stevia came into the mass production.
As the characteristics of natural，healthy, safe, zero calorie, stevia got promoted rapidly in EU, USA and Japan.
|Research and development on the new technology of stevia crystallization, components separation and extraction, Enzyme treated stevia technology was introduced to China and achieved large-scale production.|
|New technologies for asexual reproduction planting was introduced RA leaves , was promoted to plant in China.|
China has developed its own technology for the separation and extraction of stevia and realized large-scale production in Jining, Shandong Province.
From then on, China entered the Great Development of Stevia and became the global stevia planting, processing, export base.
|Japan and Korea studied the enzyme treated stevia to solve the problem of bitter after taste|
|Stevia was introduced to China, trial small-scale planting in Guangdong, Jiangsu and other areas , and in the south of the Yangtze River try large scale planting successfully.|
|Stevia was introduced to Japan and started to plant. Stevia extraction and purification technology was studied and promoted to apply.|
|French scientist successfully successfully seperated steviol glycosides from stevia leaves.|
|Swiss botanist Moises Santiago Bertoni studied stevia plant properties and sweetness, officially named Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni;|
|500 years ago|
|Spanish botanist Petrus Jacobus Stevus studies the classification of stevia species, named Stevia;|
