Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni, a plant originating in Paraguay, produces a variety of high-potency, low calorie sweeteners in its leaf tissue. The essential oil composition of the aerial parts of fi ve different Stevia rebaudiana genotypes cultivated in Tuscany coast (Italy) were examined by GC and GC/MS. Forty different components were identifi ed and the main constituents in all studying samples were spathulenol (13.4-40.9%), caryophyllene oxide (1.3-18.7%), β-caryophyllene (2.1-16.0%) and β-pinene (5.5-21.5%).

Abstract

Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni, a plant originating in Paraguay, produces a variety of high-potency, low calorie sweeteners in its leaf tissue. The essential oil composition of the aerial parts of fi ve different Stevia rebaudiana genotypes cultivated in Tuscany coast (Italy) were examined by GC and GC/MS. Forty different components were identifi ed and the main constituents in all studying samples were spathulenol (13.4-40.9%), caryophyllene oxide (1.3-18.7%), β-caryophyllene (2.1-16.0%) and β-pinene (5.5-21.5%).
