Abstract: The main toxicological concern of stevioside, a highly potent sweetener from S. rebaudiana, is its main metabolite, steviol. To determine very low levels of steviol in in vivo experiments, a sensitive liquid chromatography/atmospheric pressure chemical ionization mass spectrometry (LC/APCI-MS) method was developed for quantifying steviol in rat plasma after oral administration of a single dose of stevioside (0.5 g/kg). The sample preparation uses liquid-liquid extraction with tert-butyl methyl ether in an acidic environment. The retention time of steviol was 10.5 min. The assay was linear over the range 2-1000 ng/mL with a lower limit of detection of 1 ng/mL. The intra- and inter-day precision were
