Beginning in 2008 in the U.S., stevia leaf extracts have been given Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status. The FDA has reviewed the published research, listened to expert opinions and, based on the evidence, has no objections to ingredient maker determinations that stevia leaf extract is safe for use in foods and beverages.
