Stevia is a natural herbal sweetener which can be used in drinks, in baking and cooking.
Used worldwide as an no-calorie herbal sweetener, Stevia is a South American herb that is 30 times sweeter than sugar. Stevia has been used as a sweetener by the Guarani Indians of Paraguay for hundreds of years. The leaves of this small, green Stevia rebaudiana plant have a delicious and refreshing taste.
Stevia has many excellent properties. The body does not metabolize the sweet glycosides from the stevia leaf or any of its processed forms - so there is no caloric intake. Stevia doesn't adversely affect blood glucose levels.
This product contains no sugar, wheat, yeast, preservatives, colourants, calories or artificial sweeteners. No bitter after taste.
Suggested Usage: Since stevia powder is intensely sweet we recommend that it be used by “the pinch” (or drop if diluted in water) or alternatively: Dissolve a teaspoon of Stevia powder in 3 tablespoons of filtered water. Shake well. Keep concentrate of Stevia solution in a dropper bottle. Use to taste.
