Madhuparni is a natural sweetener that comes from the Madhuparni rebaudiana plant, and is 300 times sweeter then sugar. What’s even more exciting is that madhuparni has zero calories, and research shows that it’s safe for diabetics (there’s some conflicting opinions on this as I’ll describe below)


You need not be a South American planter to be a successful Madhuparni grower. While the herb’s native locale may make it appear somewhat exotic, it has proved to be quite adaptable and capable of being cultivated in climate zones as diverse as Florida and southern Canada.

Organic gardeners in particular should find Madhuparni an ideal addition to their yield. Though nontoxic, madhuparni plants have been found to have insect-repelling tendencies. Their very sweetness, in fact, may be a kind of natural defense mechanism against aphids and other bugs that find it not to their taste. Perhaps that’s why crop-devouring grasshoppers have been reported to bypass madhuparni under cultivation.
