Steviol glycosides are a family of compounds found in Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni that are responsible for sweetness capacity. The antihyperglycemic effect of the two major steviol glycosides, Rebaudioside A and Stevioside, has been studied and it has been found that despite having the same common structure, only Stevioside exerts an antihyperglycemic effect. Although other steviol derivatives are found in smaller amounts (minor steviol glycosides) in S. rebaudiana, whether or not they possess antihyperglycemic activity has not been evaluated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antihyperglycemic effect of minor steviol glycosides in normoglycemic and diabetic (streptozotocin/nicotinamide) Wistar rats. Rats were subjected to an intraperitoneal glucose tolerance test (IPGTT) both before and after chronic treatment (28 days). After 6 h of fasting, IPGTT was conducted in pentobarbital-anesthetized rats using 1 g/kg of glucose plus 20 mg/kg of the minor glycoside (Dulcoside A, Rebaudioside B, C, D, or Steviolbioside) or control treatment (distilled water, glibenclamide, or metformin); the blood of the tip of the tail was collected at time 0, 15, 30, 60, and 120 min.; and blood glucose was measured, and its net area under the curve (AUCnet) was calculated. After 28-day chronic oral administration, IPGTT was again performed. Differences were considered significant at P < .05 by one-way ANOVA. Acute intraperitoneal or chronic oral administration of 20 mg/kg of minor steviol glycosides had no antihyperglycemic effect in normoglycemic or induced-diabetic Wistar rats. Considering the dose tested, it is unlikely that these glycosides have an effect on glucose in diabetic or normoglycemic humans.

A β-galactosidase from Kluyveromyces lactis was found to specifically catalyze hydrolysis of the glycosyl ester linkage of stevioside to yield steviolbioside, a rare sweetener that also exists in Stevia rebaudiana leaves. In a packed bed reactor, a reaction coupling separation was realized and a production yield of steviolbioside reached 90% in 6 h. The hydrolysis product steviolbioside presented higher cytoxicity on human normal cells (hepatocytes cell L02 and intestinal epithelial cell T84) than stevioside did. Comparing to the typical chemotherapy agent, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), steviolbioside presents much lower cytotoxicity on all assayed human normal cells; it presented notable inhibition on human hepatocarcinoma cell Hep3B, human breast cancer cell MDA-MB-231 and human pancreatic cancer cell BxPC-3. The remarkable inhibition on MDA-MB-231 cells makes steviolbioside a potential remedy for human breast cancer, when steviolbioside is served as a natural sweetener.

The hydrolysis of the steviol glycosides rebaudioside (Reb) A and E, as well as steviolbioside (a metabolic intermediate) to steviol was evaluated in vitro using human fecal homogenates from healthy Caucasian and Asian donors. Incubation of each of the Rebs in both groups resulted in a rapid hydrolysis to steviol. Metabolism of 0.2mg/mL sample was complete within 24h, with the majority occurring within the first 16 h. There were no clear differences in the rate or extent of metabolism of Reb E relative to the comparative control Reb A. The hydrolysis of samples containing 2.0mg/mL of steviol glycosides Reb A and Reb E tended to take slightly longer than 0.2mg/mL samples. Herein, we report for the first time that there were no apparent gender or ethnicity differences in the rate of metabolism of any of the Rebs, regardless of the concentrations tested. Steviolbioside, an intermediate in the hydrolysis of Reb E to steviol was also found to be rapidly degraded to steviol. These results demonstrate Reb E is metabolized to steviol in the same manner as Reb A. These data support the use of toxicology data available on steviol, and on steviol glycosides metabolized to steviol (i.e., Reb A) to underpin the safety of Reb E.
