Does a natural sweetener with zero calories seem too good to be true? Well, it’s not . . .
The stevia plant, native to South America, yields a unique and super-sweet extract that gives your taste-buds a burst of sweetness without the guilt. Stevia extract is 60-100 times sweeter than sugar. . . and has absolutely zero calories.
For generations stevia was carefully guarded by the Guarani tribe of South America who used it in their unique potions and to counter the bitterness of maté, a favorite drink. In 1905, Italian botanist Moises Santiago Bertoni obtained a specimen, launching its use in Europe and eventually Asia.
With an extensive amount of research behind its safety and benefits, stevia has become a popular alternative to sugar. It doesn’t cause tooth decay. And – given its extremely low spot on the glycemic index - it’s a great ally for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels already within the normal range. Some research indicates stevia’s health benefits may go even further . . . in the raw stevia contains over 100 phytonutrients.
