Stevia is very unique among food ingredients because of what it doesn’t do. It doesn’t add calories! Hurray! Stevia is all natural, unlike other sugar substitutes. It’s made from a leaf related to popular garden flowers like asters and chrysanthemums. In South America, people have been using Stevia to sweeten drinks for thousands of years. Stevia is 300 times sweeter than sugar in the same concentration. Talk about sweet! We use Stevia in almost every product we make because of the great taste but also because it it has minimal effect on your blood sugar levels.
