Stevia In The Raw is an all-natural sweetener with less than 4 calories per packet. The sweetener is derived from the leaves of the stevia plant which is native to South America. The ingenious peoples of South America have used stevia as a sweetener for over 400 years. Stevia has also been used in Japan for over 30 years and entered the European market last year.
Past stevia products had a slight licorice after taste, but Stevia In The Raw contains only the pure, sweet flavor. Stevia is great in hot and cold beverages, is heat stable, and is great for cooking and baking. One packet of stevia’s sweetness is equivalent to two teaspoons of sweetness.
Any product with less than 4 calories the FDA considers to be zero-calorie. This product is suitable for people with diabetes. Stevia In The Raw is also certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative.
